Do you love to read literature that changes how people think and feel? This course invites you to engage with literature and culture, and to explore how they interact. Through the course you'll develop the high-level transferable skills, including excellent written communication, that employers associate with graduates in English.
During the first year you'll develop the critical and analytical skills that are needed for the rest of the course. From then on there is an increasing amount of choice over which options you'll study, so you can shape your learning journey to suit your interests. The options cover everything from Marlowe to Byron and from American Gothic to First World War prose.
We also offer opportunities to study abroad for a semester in your second year, usually in North America or mainland Europe. It's a stimulating way to broaden your cultural sensitivity and consider additional perspectives.
You'll be taught by staff whose research is constantly contributing to critical debates about literature. 100% of students say staff are good at explaining things and a similarly high percentage are positive about Northumbria's outstanding library resources and services. External examiners have also praised the course, describing it as â€œtruly excellent and a model of good practiceâ€.

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods, which may include lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work and tutorials. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that will underpin your learning journey. You will have access to a Guidance Tutor with whom you can discuss any academic issues. Extensive feedback from both tutors and peers is built into the course.
