ENGLISH LITERATURE

Do you have a passion for literature? Do you want to explore the ways in which literary texts address and influence the most important questions facing societies both when they were written and today? Study English Literature at Liverpool Hope and you will read a wide variety of texts from medieval through to the present day. You will encounter news ways of looking at literature by not only studying texts on campus but also going on various field trips. Single Honours students will also be trained to read and analyse some of the rare books and manuscripts from our library's archives of over 75,000 items,  in courses on the history and theory of publication and reading.

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 developments across periods of English literature. 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 not only strive to support you in the pursuit of academic excellence but also help you to explore your wide range of options after university through a focus on the diverse skills you will develop and the many sectors that will welcome you as an English Literature graduate.
