About BA English

An English degree from the University of Bristol gives you the opportunity to study the full breadth and range of literature written in English.

Year one lays strong foundations, providing training in close reading, critical and theoretical approaches and in the skills and conventions of academic writing, alongside the study of poetry, narrative writing and drama from the medieval to the mid-eighteenth century. You may also choose an optional unit or a unit from another subject area at Bristol.

In year two the continued study of successive periods of English literature, from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day, is complemented with work on individual authors and topics chosen from a list of research-led special subject units, as well as options related to earlier literature. Single Honours students may choose to study abroad for one teaching block of their second year.

The third year is fully optional and offers a combination of options in later literature, in transhistorical topics and in special subjects, as well as the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of your own choosing.
