English courses

Develop your critical, analytical and writing skills on our research-driven English courses, including undergraduate programmes in English literature, English language and creative writing.

English literature courses take a wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary approach, combining traditional modules such as Shakespearean drama with elective topics such as philosophy, censorship and screen adaptation. English language programmes introduce you to linguistics, examining language in a variety of social, political, cultural and historical contexts. And our creative writing courses are designed to get you publishing your own poetry, scripts or prose.

On all our courses you'll be taught by published researchers and established writers, and develop transferable skills through work-based projects and optional extended placements. We also offer masters-level English and creative writing courses, as well as PhD study within the Humanities Research Centre.
