Join us to share your enthusiasm for English Literature. Our innovative course includes the study of traditional figures such as Shakespeare and Dickens alongside options in American literature and culture, gothic, graphic novels, drama, theatre, film, children’s literature and the fairy tale. You’ll learn about the relationship between literature and culture, understanding the vital role played by literary productions in interpreting the world around us. You’ll also learn to communicate with clarity and precision in oral and written forms, appreciating the value of aesthetic qualities in all modes of human interaction.

*Tuition Fees are per year unless otherwise stated. Currently the 2018/19 fee level, which is due to increase in line with UK Retail Price Index inflation rates has not been announced by the Government.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
