“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
WHY STUDY ENGLISH LANGUAGE?
English Language allows you to consider the reliability of a text in relation to its topic, while also unpicking the techniques the writer uses to create a fully developed text. You will then be putting those techniques into practice with your own writing, developing the skills needed to communicate, describe and convince others effectively. English Language will give you the experience and knowledge, along with the analytical tools, to evaluate, engage and critique texts confidently for whatever context you find yourselves in, now and in the future.
WHY STUDY ENGLISH LITERATURE?
English Literature will open your eyes to not only the development of the English language, but also wider society and the changing world that our writers, and ourselves, live in. English Literature will give you the opportunities, experiences, knowledge and analytical tools to evaluate, engage and critique confidently for whatever context you find yourselves in, now and in the future. Literature is the gateway to achievement, intellectual curiosity, personal well-being and empathy.
