About this course

In the first year of the BA degree in English Language and Culture, students will read a broad range of literary texts and they will learn about English as a language. They will analyse many important works, study literary theory, and engage with writings in English from the beginnings to the present. 

In the second year, students will be able to choose courses on medieval literary studies, modern literature, and linguistics. For instance, they can study the writings of premodern women, the myth of King Arthur, the modernist novel, Shakespeare and his time, or contemporary American and postcolonial literature.
