About the courseThe study of English is concerned with the history and practices of writing in English and encompasses literary works spanning English, Anglo-Irish, American and post-colonial cultures. It aims to develop a thorough knowledge of the history of these literatures while also enabling students to develop a sophisticated critical consciousness and an awareness of critical and cultural theory. Compared to English Literature (Joint Honours) students, English Studies students cover a longer historical range (including before 1300) and also consider topics such as popular literature and childhood in literature.If you want to study the whole range of developments in English and related literatures, from their earliest beginnings through to contemporary studies in the language, you would enjoy either English Literature or English Studies. If you are interested in English Literature in conjunction with another field (such as History or Philosophy), Joint Honours is probably the best option for you, conversely, if your primary interest in English, you might consider English Studies. Students in the School of English may apply to study abroad on the Erasmus programme in Europe or on an exchange in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Singapore and China during their third year.
