English and American Literature

This programme allows students to choose from the full range of our literature modules. The list of what�s on offer is regularly added to by academics keen to explore new areas of thinking with students and to draw students in to our established areas of research strength, such as postcolonial studies; 18th-century studies; modern poetry and fiction; or Victorian studies. The modules draw on many different critical approaches and focus on a wide range of historical periods, ideas and places from modern India to post-war New York to literary London in the 18th century.Within this programme you may also choose to take pathways, so as to concentrate on studies in certain specific areas (especially if you intend to continue to a research degree in a particular field).

Entry requirements

A first or second class honours degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent).

Assessment methods

Assessment is by a 5-6,000 word essay for each module, and a dissertation of 12-15,000 words.
