If you love reading and discussing books then a degree in English Literature could be perfect for you. Studying English Literature will allow you to develop your knowledge of literary history, criticism and theory across a wide range of published works. Students can expect to learn more about UK literature and as time goes on, will develop the ability to defend ideas as well as analyse. It is a good accompaniment to study alongside other subjects like history and politics. Students who study English Literature can go on to work in advertising, education and marketing. Some pursue law and take law conversion courses.
