The BA (Hons) English degree at the University of Lincoln explores a lively and varied collection of texts within their historical and theoretical contexts, from Medieval literature and the Renaissance to postcolonialism and postmodernism. Throughout the course students are encouraged to consider literature within a variety of theoretical, historical and cultural contexts. There are opportunities to study Victorian literature, Modernism, Romanticism and contemporary writing from a global perspective. There are opportunities to explore poetry, fiction, drama and less traditional literary forms, such as life writing and graphic novels. Students can choose to develop a portfolio of creative writing pieces, as well as study texts from other creative industries including film, television and advertising.
The first year introduces narrative, poetry, drama, popular culture, literary history and literary criticism. In year two, optional modules include American Literature, Restoration Literature and Creative Writing. There are opportunities to study abroad for one term. Students who do so are responsible for any associated travel, accommodation and general living costs. In the final year, students can pursue specialist subjects such as the literature of childhood, Irish writing, science fiction, ecocriticism, and Gothic literature and film. Students are required to undertake a dissertation on a topic of their choice. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website.

Application deadline details:
Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
