The Culture, Literature and Politics program offered by the University of East Anglia allows you to bring together the different worlds of culture, literature and politics, and to study them separately and together. It enables you to learn about politics and about literature, but also to explore the connections between the two.

About

The Culture, Literature and Politics program offered by the University of East Anglia allows you to combine the study of literature with politics and culture. You will have a great deal of choice in what you study, building a degree that closely reflects your own interests and questions. At the same time, you will develop a range of analytical and practical skills that will serve you in a wide range of future careers.

Whether your interest is in Shakespeare or post-colonial literature, whether it is the literature of Germany, Russia or the United States, there will be modules that allow you to develop your knowledge and understanding. The choice you have goes from the modern day to the Medieval period. It covers poetry, fiction, autobiography and more. It also combines literature with issues of human rights, political satire, and feminist politics. And you’ll have the chance to study topics such as music and comics as well.

You will study the way politics links with the worlds of culture and literature, through modules on popular culture, identity and gender. You’ll also learn about the broader political context, through the study of political ideas and processes.

This is a course that spans several disciplines and subject areas. It makes considerable demands of those who study it, but your efforts will be rewarded in the range of knowledge, understanding and skills you acquire over your three years.

Examples of careers you could enter include:

  • Publishing
  • Digital marketing
  • Media
  • Business management, among other careers.
