English Studies is the study of both English Language and English Literature. It is a rich and thoughtful field in which to do a degree. You study both high-level issues of Language – grammar, syntax, rhetoric and writing styles – and also theoretical and philosophical aspects of language – how language functions in relation to community and politics, issues of language and power, forms of English, and so forth. At the same time as this, you take a range of modules in English Literature, developing your understanding of the subject. Your study of English language is both functional, and cultural. English Studies is usually read in relation to a further strand: communications and media; practical journalism skills; or pedagogical skills in relation to the teaching of English.
As with the rest of Humanities, English Studies maintains small-group teaching, disappearing at other universities, allowing a real immersion in the subject, and thoughtfulness and care in the teaching. There are dedicated computer / media suites for students, and the seminar and lecture rooms in the Chandos Road Building are comfortable and well furnished. The special reading room in the central library, the Comino Room, has large holdings in relation to the degrees. There is also an English Language resource room.
