School of English undergraduate degrees

Undergraduate degrees

Our undergraduate degrees allow you to approach English studies from several different perspectives: literature, language, theatre, and creative writing. Our degrees combine the flexibility to pursue your interests with enough structure to give your studies focus and coherence.

You’ll learn through lectures and discuss what you’ve learned in small-group seminars. Depending on what modules you choose, you might also learn through workshops, practical sessions, and one-on-one supervisions.  

You can combine your study of English with a wide range of other subjects, either as a joint honours course, on the BA Liberal Arts degree, or by studying discovery modules from across the University. 

Enhance your studies

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to gain new skills and experiences, whether you want to join a student society, improve your employability, or spend time studying or working abroad.
