English Language & Literary Studies

This English degree is a unique blend of Linguistics, English Literature and Creative Writing. You will develop skills in recognising how fiction and non-fiction texts work and in writing your own texts. The course has been specially designed to enable students to become 'English specialists' as this course offers a unique opportunity to study three key areas of English. The degree also offers the opportunity for you to acquire a much broader knowledge of English than other courses offered at other universities in the country. By the time you graduate, you will be well equipped for post graduate study and many careers such as teaching, journalism, advertising, public relations and management.
Duration 3 years
Level BA Single Hons
Cost 2012/13 Tuition Fees: £6,000
Teaching is delivered to small student groups, through a variety of teaching styles. This ranges from formal lectures to seminars, workshops and one-to-one tutorials. Every year group has a personal and academic tutor assigned to them. Students can also access HE mentors outside of normal teaching hours. We timetable our teaching sessions over a two day period so that students can integrate part time work commitments and home responsibilities.
