University of Westminster

Course Introduction

This course provides the opportunity to study English literature in a modern university environment, while taking advantage of the wealth of resources offered by London's rich cultural life. Students examine literary texts in the wider context of cultural production and relate them to the social, historical and political circumstances from which they emerge. The course will be of particular interest to those wishing to prepare for further study at MPhil or PhD level, and those teaching English who want to gain a further qualification and investigate recent and current developments in the field.
