Let's craft more than words. Let's craft our future.

English at the University of Central Lancashire enables you to choose from a single subject to a combination of subjects so your degree reflects your passion. Choose from Language, Linguistics, Literature and Creative Writing, with options that include history or a modern language.

Join us at the University of Central Lancashire to study your English degree programme where we will explore and analyse elements of literary text, writing and language. We also offer unique combinations with other subjects to ensure that the degree programme you study will be in matters that are of interest to you and supports your career aspirations.

As well as delving into books and learning through small interactive classes the subject areas are brought to life in our on-campus facilities such as our Live Literature room and Linguistics Lab. Learning is also enhanced through various off campus trips to museums and places of interest tailored to the subject area.

Work related live projects will allow you to gain valuable work experience which could include planning a conference, literature festival, writing competition, reading project or setting up an exhibition.
