With access to a rich range of modules, you’ll be able to specialise in your particular field and make unexpected connections between disparate areas, such as Arthurian legend or the Victorian media revolution, Black British writing or the Brontës, psychoanalysis or postcolonialism.

You’ll also have the freedom to pursue your personal interests through an independent research project on a topic of your choice. Throughout your studies, you’ll be encouraged to consider overarching issues relating to the study of English literature in all its forms.
