Within English language and literature (the English section of the Department of Languages and Literatures) a wide range of subjects is included at undergraduate, advanced and doctoral levels. Courses at under-graduate level include, for example, phonetics, grammar, proficiency, and literature from the English-speaking world. Both language and literature survey courses are provided which look at the development and variation of English but also the social and cultural influences behind its development. It is also possible to study English at our branch office in Brighton, England.
The subject has researchers and lecturers who have specialized either within English language studies or English literature. This means that students can choose to specialise within these two areas in the third term of undergraduate studies, at advanced level and at doctoral level.
