Our English Language and Literature degrees offer you a vibrant and diverse curriculum, taught by research-active staff who are experts in their field. Our degrees are designed to ensure that you gain not only a rich grounding in our disciplines and confidence in your analytical and interpretative skills but that you leave with a wealth of transferable skills which will open doors to a wide range of postgraduate and employment opportunities. Likewise, the richness of our student experience is not confined to the classroom.

What our students say…
“Studying a degree in English Literature allows you to learn about so much more than texts alone, you become knowledgeable in history, politics, sociology, gender equality, culture – the list goes on! I chose Worcester University because I fell in love with the city and the campus, the humanities department is extremely friendly, supportive and they have expert knowledge in their subject fields.” Amy Hill
