New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

Take advantage of the opportunity to study English literature in London – the birthplace of countless literary movements and authors. NCH offers courses which combine the broad historical assessment of literature common to traditional English degrees with a wider approach to where and how we encounter literary texts and cognate forms of art.

Studying English at NCH will teach you to analyse texts in both a creative and a technical manner. You will study rhetoric, stylistics, and learn to compare different text and other art forms. You will engage with literary criticism, as well as studying literature from 1550 to the present day.

For this English and Economics degree, you will focus on literary forms and how they have changed over time. In the Economics minor you will complement your study of English with an understanding of the structures that influence the cultures and societies that produce literature – as well as keep up quantitative skills, ensuring that you will be one of the most well-rounded graduates in the job market.
