This is a new kind of English degree which sees English as a broad but unified subject focused around the production, interpretation and evaluation of texts.

Why study BA English at Middlesex University?

The course is designed to give you the opportunity to produce, analyse and critically discuss texts in a wide range of media. If you have enjoyed working on aspects of language, literature or writing in your previous studies, this programme allows you to find out more about all of these and about how they are connected.

No other course integrates language, literature and writing so fully. Our BA English degree helps you understand how these all interact with each other. You develop skills in each of these areas, helping you to speak and write in a range of contexts and to analyse and understand other people's texts.

¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

You will produce your own texts in a wide range of media and genres, analyse the work of others, engage in critical and theoretical debates, and develop your own investigations. You also explore how communicators make linguistic and other choices in producing texts, in order to have particular effects on audiences, how audiences respond to these, and how cultural contexts affect all of this.

This is a unique English course helping you to develop your own unique range of skills and the ability to create your own career path. The degree allows you to combine English language, literature and creative writing or, if you choose, to specialise in English language or creative writing specifically.

Requisitos: Interviews, entrance tests, portfolios and auditions Entry onto this course does not require an interview, entrance test, portfolio or audition.

Programa académico

The teaching on this course allows you to build and develop your skills in language, literature and writing. The course is designed to be interactive, with students taking charge of their own learning and creative practice, developing their own projects.

Each year you will study a core 30 credit, year long module which integrates work on language, literature and writing. There is also a range of optional modules which allow you to develop and pursue your own interests and to make your own connections among particular topics and among and beyond modules in the programme.

In the final year, you can choose a work placement module, which gives you the chance to apply and explore ideas developed in other modules, to develop communication skills, to understand how institutions are structured, and to develop your understanding of the relevance of high level skills in communication, analysis and research to specific workplace environments and institutions.

Placements last for half an academic year and run alongside other modules. Recent placements have included:

Working and writing copy for the TFL page in Metro
