Studying English Literature allows candidates to experience a range of literature with a wide variety of appeal drawn from contemporary and modern texts. These texts can originate from across the globe and have had a significant influence on our English literary and cultural heritage.
Through studying the plays of Shakespeare to the novels of Orwell, students will become adept at analysing and interpreting literature in a variety of formats. Students will be required to inquire and think critically, which is excellent for developing problem solving, listening, reading and writing skills.
