ENGLISH LITERATURE

Do you have a passion for literature? Do you want to explore the relationships between literary texts, other media and the cultures that produce and consume them? Study English Literature at Liverpool Hope and you will encounter a wide variety of texts from medieval right through to contemporary literature. As much as possible we try to make the experience of literature come alive by not only studying texts in classrooms but also going on various local and national field trips. Single Honours students will also be trained to read and analyse rare books and manuscripts from our library's Special Collections in courses on the history of the book and the history of publishing.

During your three years of study, you will gain a sound grasp of the contexts and approaches within which English literature can be studied, as well as gaining a sense of the development across periods of English literature. You expand your awareness of and sensitivity to the conventions and expectations that shape communication, and the dynamics of these within a given text. You also develop a critical appreciation of the ways in which knowledge of other disciplines and their relationships to English literature can contribute to a deeper understanding of literary texts.

The academic staff teaching the degree have research expertise in a broad range of fields, from late medieval to contemporary literature. We pride ourselves on offering a challenging and stimulating degree, and our commitment to small group teaching allows us to help each individual student to develop sophisticated analytical and communication skills through working both independently and in groups. We strive to support you in the pursuit of academic excellence.
