On BA English & American Literature, students can explore the distinct but interrelated literary traditions of two nations and cultures spanning five centuries, from the early 1600s to the present day. This degree is directly informed by the creative and critical mix of academic experts in the College's top-rated English department. Students will also examine a variety of areas in American literature, including the literature of the first encounter, nineteenth-century and African-American writing, satire, New York School poetry, drama, the urban novel and writing about music and the novella. Students will have the chance to take courses in other departments, studying American history or film, to broaden their understanding of America. Students will learn how to create, criticise and shape an artistic work: a valuable life skill with uses beyond writing poetry, plays or novels.  From journalism and website creation to advertising and academic publishing – students can use the skills you pick up in character, voice, ambiguity, style and cultural context.
