Above all else, you love to read: novels, poetry, non-fiction, drama, magazines. You want to give yourself the opportunity to read great books and to learn more about the English language. You want to engage with the writings that have helped us to understand ourselves and the world that we live in. You want to know more about culture, in the broadest sense. You love film and music; and you want to understand how these art forms relate to fiction, drama, and poetry. You love to write, and you want to express yourself as eloquently and effectively as possible. You are open to new ideas, and to the power of words and images to inform, influence, and convince.
Why Study English at UL?
The English programme at UL will enable you to develop critical and analytical skills through an appreciation of the English language and its literature, as well as through the study of the social, cultural, and historical contexts in which that literature was produced. You will learn about literary analysis and literary history from the 16th century to the contemporary world. You can choose electives to suit your own interests, in Irish, British, American, and World literatures, and in women’s writing.
