Learn about the complex relationships between texts, theory and contemporary debate. You will study everything from novels and poetry to memoirs and creative non-fiction, engaging with British, American and postcolonial contemporary writing.
York is a great place for book lovers. We take part in York Literature Festival every year – an event which has hosted Margaret Atwood, Michel Faber and many other famous literary names. Workshops, writing sessions and readings are as central to your learning as lectures and seminars.
Classes take place once a week for each module. You can study part-time (taking one module each term) or full-time (two modules each term). Classes are taught during the week and often take place in the early evening.
