Literature Degree Courses

If you are fascinated by the written word and have an unquenchable thirst for reading then studying Literature may be for. Most Literature degrees are assessed through short and long form essay writing or written examinations, so make sure you're just as comfortable putting sentences together as you are at unpicking them. You will be taught how to read and analyse texts from multiple theoretical perspectives and will be asked to complete regular essays drawing on both primary and secondary literary sources.
