University of Bristol
The Department of English is recognised for its research and teaching across the full breadth and range of literatures in English, with an extensive geographical and chronological span. Our staff research and teach literature from the medieval period to the present day, working across global, national, regional and local perspectives, with an innovative range of approaches and theoretical models.
The sessions in this stream will introduce you to some of the ways in which literatures in English are studied at university by focusing on different aspects of literary studies. You will explore a range of texts, concepts and approaches, and take part in activities modelled on our undergraduate teaching which may include close reading and analysis, understandings of various intellectual traditions, creative writing, and exploration of social and cultural contexts.
An English degree will help you to develop a broad range of communication skills and evaluative techniques. Our students develop skills in close reading, analysis and writing, which equip them for a wide range of careers: English graduates are versatile researchers, active learners and good communicators.
