BA (Hons) English Studies

BA (Hons) English Studies, awarded by Coventry University is a course for students who are interested in both English Language and English Literature. This course concentrates more (though certainly not exclusively) on contemporary literatures and language use, and will give an insight into relationships ‘from the local to the global’. This involves a broad focus, including everything from regional literatures and varieties of English to Anglophone world literatures and World Englishes, in subjects such as Shakespeare today, colonial and postcolonial literatures, creative writing and English and globalisation. Employability is embedded throughout the course, which also includes English for business 

Upon completion of this degree, you will receive a qualification awarded by Coventry University.
