Degree Overview

We start by covering topics such as how to analyse a poem and how to read a novel as a literary critic, moving on to historical surveys of the literature. We then explore in more detail many of the periods, movements, and topics previously covered.

Students will also study one French module per semester in each Level, either as a beginner or at the intensive level if they have previously studied the language at Higher/A-Level.

In Levels 1 and 2 students will also complement their specialist subjects by studying additional Humanities or Social Sciences subjects such as History, Philosophy, or Geography.
