English and American Studies BA
Over the course of the English and American Studies BA you will discover the unique identities of English and American literature and how the cultures of each country have affected their literary heritage. English studies will begin in the Renaissance and advance your knowledge of the period's great drama, prose and poetry. Your English studies will continue through to modern day literature with stops along the way in the Victorian, Romantic and Modern periods. Your American Studies modules will introduce you to a history and literary tradition characterised by independence and growth.
The modules offer a sound education in each topic and complement each other with a stimulating mix of English and American literature and American history and film. The English courses give students a full history of English, from Shakespeare to the 21st century as well as an introduction to a variety of critical approaches. The American courses offer an exciting combination of American literature, film and history.
The breadth of the modules that we offer will take you in unexpected directions and allow you to focus on your own areas of interest - particularly in your third year when you will be able to choose from a vast range of option modules.
We understand the importance of experience for both academic and personal growth so our English and American Studies degree can be taken as a three-year programme or (subject to academic performance in your first and second years) as a four-year programme with a year abroad at one of our 35 partner universities in the USA and Canada.
