The English BA offers a comprehensive survey of English literature in its various manifestations, leading you through the earliest material in English to the globalised literature of the present day. You will be given the opportunity to experience the full range and diversity of poetry, drama and prose written in English, encountering every major current and figure, from the early medieval sagas to the early modern stage, and from the Romantic movement to the post-war period and beyond. You will also discover how English literature has adapted to reflect various conditions throughout its long history, and how the latest critical approaches can enable you to engage with its varied forms and content.
The level of coverage offered by our English degree means that our graduates leave Leicester with an unrivalled breadth of knowledge and an extensive range of skills. A variety of option modules will allow you to shape your studies around your own interests, and to deepen your understanding of subjects and areas that most appeal to you. Our teaching staff are active researchers in a large number of different fields, from Caribbean literature to writing on medicine, and from the pre-Conquest period to the post-colonial era. Particularly strong areas of expertise include medieval literature, early modern literature, the Victorian period, the 20th century, and creative writing.
