Course details
Course UCAS code: QQ38
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Sandwich , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Explore literature from the ancient world to contemporary Britain with this wide-ranging degree, which puts English literature into the context of its classical heritage. Core modules will introduce you to key classical texts such as the Iliad and Aeneid, as well as poetry, prose and drama in English across literary periods. However, the diverse research interests at Leeds mean we can offer an impressive array of optional modules, so you can follow your interests in ancient literature alongside a full range of English topics. You could study Herodotus and historical writing, Ovid or Greek tragedy, as well how Dante and contemporary authors have engaged with their classical forbears. Then you could explore African literature, language in the media or folklore and mythology. Classical texts are taught in translation, so you don’t need to have studied an ancient language. However, we offer Ancient Greek and Latin in every year of the degree if you want to learn or continue with either.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
