English BA

UCAS code: Q300

This programme aims to provide a historically-based overview of the literature of all periods, together with opportunities to specialise in particular periods of literature, in modern English language, and in non-period courses. Students are encouraged to develop their own interests and may choose from a wide variety of specialisms.

Degree benefits

  • Studying English at UCL provides you with an inspired setting: central London has long been the centre of British literary life and you will be surrounded by world-class libraries.
  • UCL was at the forefront of the establishment of English literature as a university subject and the department is regularly ranked as the top in the country (for example, in the Guardian university guide)
  • The English department has a strong tradition of links with the literary world. Practising writers are invited to give readings and there is a writer-in-residence programme.
  • In addition to core courses on Shakespeare and Chaucer the undergraduate syllabus offers a wide range of optional courses in many historical periods.

The first year of the English BA acts as a foundation for the two following years, covering major narrative texts from the Renaissance to the present, background texts from Homer to Freud and Barthes, Anglo-Saxon and medieval writings and the study of critical method.

In the second and third years you will study compulsory courses on Chaucer and Shakespeare, and will choose six further courses from a wide range of options. American literature and literature in English from other countries outside Europe feature strongly on several courses and attention is paid to the study of film.

Your learning

We teach through lectures, seminars and tutorials. Our one-to-one tutorial teaching is, we think, a unique provision in English departments in the UK. Tutorials provide the opportunity to discuss with your tutor your individual written work and academic progress, and for you to raise any concerns or queries about your courses or other matters.

Assessment

Most courses are assessed by three-hour question papers, but some courses are examined by six-hour examinations with plain texts provided of the author's complete works. You will be assessed in your third year by a 6,000-word essay on a 'Special Subject' chosen by you with guidance from your tutor.
