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.

The English with Art History BA will allow you to study the full range of artistic expression. You’ll explore forms of literature such as political speeches, the plays of Shakespeare, and responses to them. For your Art History minor, you’ll study different forms of visual art in detail and their aesthetic and cultural contexts. These studies will allow you to make connections between art and the literature you study for your English major.
