BA English Literature with Foundation Q302

Full Time: 4 Years
Discover how literature has shaped our view of the world, and develop core academic skills, with our BA English Literature with Foundation course.
This four-year programme includes a foundation year that leads directly into the three-year course, providing an excellent route into a degree in English literature if you do not have the typical entry qualifications.
Literature is characterised by extraordinary richness and diversity. Throughout your studies, you will explore texts from across the globe, across a range of genres and periods. Enter lively debate with others who share your passion for literature; study authors and genres that you may already know, and discover others that may be less familiar to you.
Our BA English Literature with Foundation course will provide you with:
the creative and critical ability to examine texts in detail, and draw your own conclusions
knowledge of a variety of literary texts — including poetry, prose, drama and film — from a range of periods
an awareness of the ways in which literature responds to cultural context, and how texts accrue new meaning.
You will be taught by experts from the Department of English Literature, whose expertise and research spans everything from medieval poetry to contemporary Caribbean and American fiction. Our BA English Literature with Foundation is flexible, and you will be encouraged to develop your own literary enthusiasms and follow your interests through our wide variety of modules.
