Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
In English Literature, study is wide-ranging and includes modern and traditional literature, cultural study and critical analysis, Shakespeare and rap poetry. The Creative Writing elements of the programme enhance your skills at your own pace and in your own way, all the while showing you how your work relates to the wider realms of literary and cultural context. The English Literature elements in the first academic year provide an awareness of the range of different approaches to understanding texts and develop skills of critical analysis, research and writing. This is achieved through the study of an assortment of texts from various periods in history across the genres of prose fiction, poetry and drama. In the second academic year, the focus becomes more specific with modules that look at elements of different genres such as writing for children, media writing, poetry, song and play, film and TV script. English Literature modules involve studying a group of texts representative of a period of history, a particular genre or a particular area of the world. In the final academic year, the modules increasingly look at the relationships between writing and the world beyond the University – looking at publishing, producing, community audiences, writing and teaching – and a specific collection of writings, a particular theme or critical theory is considered in detail. Modules tend to be closely related to the research interests of teaching staff and engage with cutting-edge developments in the discipline. In the Creative Writing modules, you move progressively through a structured series of writing assignments and exercises, enhanced by a workshop environment that will form a critical understanding of your own writing and the writing of others.

Winchester was such a pretty, lovely place to study. It’s a real community oriented university, you’ll get to know everyone here which is great. The nightlife isn’t crazy like, say, Brighton, there are a few nice clubs here, The SU throws the Bop every Wednesday is bloody mental, and if you want to have a really good night out you can get a cheap taxi down to Southampton. My tutors were really supportive, and they drove me to the best of my ability - they offered great feedback and were always available for a chat.
