Why study English

Beginning with words on a page, English is a world-facing subject: it takes you across historical periods, cultures, locations and genres, from poetry and drama to the novel, film, and creative writing too. As a student of English, you will learn about:

  • Different literary forms.

  • The conditions that shape writing, from history and geography to questions of gender, race, and class. 

  • How literary texts enable us to understand our own complex world.

  • Different approaches to and theories of literature. 

  • How different schools of critical thought or areas have shaped and reshaped the subject of English literary studies.
