English grads are creative; they welcome intense challenges and are accustomed to working with complex material. Persuasive and passionate writing is one of their most obvious strengths.
You will learn to critically evaluate the theories and ideas that literature is based on, and how literature shapes our lives and culture today. You will become a skilled and effective researcher with the ability to communicate what you have learned.
The field of English literature is changing, but the ability to communicate effectively will always be in demand. Our grads have careers in everything from online publishing to teaching to creative therapy.
If you love writing and reading a wide variety of texts, a degree in English might be the right choice for you.
An English degree also forms a strong base for further studies in other disciplines such as law, theology and education.
