Course content

Combine specialist study, theoretical inquiry and interdisciplinary investigations to explore literature, culture and history.
You’ll either focus on a specific period or concept or engage broadly with ideas across a wide historic range. The diverse research interests of the School of English means you can shape your course to your particular interests.
You’ll learn the theoretical ideas and conceptual methods that underpin research in literature. You’ll develop the skills necessary for further study inside and outside academia. Your learning will benefit from interdisciplinary research carried out in our research centres. These include the Centre for Modernist Studies and the Centre for Early Modern and Medieval Studies.
