Students may complete their English major by completing units in Literary Studies with a part study in Writing. Literary Studies introduces you to a broad range of literary texts and ways of reading them. The emergence of modern literary theories and ways of understanding literary texts and "literature" itself has had an enormous influence on the way in which we think about our language and society, history and culture, politics and identity. Literary Studies will help you develop essential critical skills that strengthen your ability to contribute to a broad range of issues and debates. Writing is designed for students who enjoy writing and are interested in developing and consolidating their writing skills and experience. Students will extend their practical and analytical skills and their understanding of theoretical concepts, in the area of creative and professional writing.  Throughout the English major, you will develop skills in methods of reading, analysis and interpretation that equip you for further work in journalism, teaching and the broader literature industry.
