Course description

English Literature is highly regarded by universities and is a subject which encourages active discussion in the classroom. A variety of work is explored over the course, including the poetry of Carol Ann Duffy, the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Regeneration by Pat Barker, Hamlet and The Revengeƌ͛ƐdƌĂŐĞĚLJ͘
During the course you will develop the ability to write at length and structure an argument in a sophisticated way. Your written and spoken literacy skills will develop further. Clearly students are expected to enjoy reading for pleasure outside the classroom, and the course is demanding in terms of the amount of reading you will need to undertake and the difficulty of the texts.
English Literature is a recommended, and sometimes essential, subject to study Law at university. It is obviously needed for those who want to take English degree courses. It is also useful for those wanting to take a languages course or follow careers in journalism and media.
