Course content

The English subject at Ulster University forms part of the School of English and History in the Faculty of Arts. It is a vibrant and diverse centre for the study of English literature and culture and hosts an active and thriving body of postgraduate students.

Individual scholars within the department are engaged in an extensive range of research fields which maintain and enhance the broader scholarly practice of English Studies across the globe, from Early Modern, Eighteenth Century and Victorian literature and culture, through to Modern, Contemporary, and Creative Writing, as well as Critical Theory.

Several of the researchers working in these areas also distinctively contribute to a significant focus on the study and intellectual endorsement of Irish Literature, which is also strongly and widely represented in the department’s teaching practice.

Irish Literature and Bibliography; Bibliographical and Editorial Work in Irish and Anglo-Irish Literature; Literary History especially 18th-20th Centuries
