Choose your path

Our Department respects long-established literary and historical questions, yet remains undeniably modern and cutting edge. It’s somewhere which invites you to embrace literature's ability to change thinking, beliefs, and societies.

We want you to enjoy the freedom our degree offers. We want to support you in choosing a learning journey that defines you. So make that journey weird and wonderful, polemic and provocative, or tried, tested and traditional – just make it your own and know that, as your degree progresses, we’ll offer you the range of modules and assessment which will allow you to personalise that journey.
