Prescribed texts include anthologies of poetry and literary criticism, one play, and a handbook on studying poetry.
The English Literature course at the University of Glasgow includes a poetry writing competition and an open mic forum. Novel and Narratology addresses the novel form in English and theories of narrative and its cultural effects. There are also opportunities to develop skills in creative writing.
A degree in English Literature opens up a wide range of career opportunities, such as teaching, writing, publishing, journalism, research and production in the arts and media sectors and other forms of cultural leadership, the civil service, public relations and cultural policy, financy, business and technology.
