The study of English at Cardiff Met forms part of the BA Humanities Joint Honours programme within the Cardiff School of Education and Social Policy.
The subject will engage with your enthusiasm for reading and literature and introduce you to advanced critical thinking in the form of theoretical practice. You will analyse a wide range of texts (including film and digital narratives) to explore the cutting edge of English as well as its canonical texts.
A mixture of thematic and chronological modules ensures a good grounding in genre, context and period. You will challenge assumptions about the production of narratives and their relationship to questions of authority and identity. The degree has a strong contemporary focus and provides highly valued employability skills.
Modules are taught by a research active team (including Dr Carmen Casaliggi, Dr Elizabeth English, and Dr Nick Taylor-Collins) who have research interests in Romanticism, Modernist and Contemporary Literature, with specialisms in Irish literature, women's writing, and the work of John Ruskin.
