English at St Maryâ??s has a strong research profile that is matched by a strong and sympathetic commitment to our students. We have an 'open door' policy that encourages our community of students to come for one-to-one tutorials in addition to the usual lectures and seminars. All this is reflected year after year in the national student satisfaction survey. Our students get grounding in the study of language and in diverse periods and genres of English literature. There is a focus on particular fields of interest that can be narrowed and sharpened as students progress. St Maryâ??s has a range of International exchange programmes, and students in English frequently take up the option of spending a semester abroad in the United States or Germany, with no extra cost in tuition.
Programme explores the place of language and literature in a variety of historical, social and cultural contexts. Level 1: Core modules provide an introduction to literary and language studies; range of optional modules: children and language; introduction to western European drama; contemporary poets of the British Isles; writing for new media. Level 2: Range of modules increases, complementing the core studies of literature and language; optional modules typically offered include: approaches to Shakespeare; language and society; the age of satire; Renaissance drama; history of the English language; the power of language in the media; women and society in the 19th-century novel; 18th-century London: writing in the metropolis; language and gender; film and literature: interpretation and adaptation. Level 3: Options broaden the areas of main study and students write a dissertation; options include: modernism in English literature; the film of the book; talk in life and literature; American literature; literature of World War I; Jane Austen: novel and film; Bob Dylan; Shakespeare and appropriation; creative writing: poetry and prose; 2nd language acquisition; language and the brain.
St Mary's University is unique in every sense of the word. As a student here, you'll be a part of more than an academic institution you'll also be in a close-knit community which has always valued diversity, sporting and academic brilliance and a sense of fun! Strawberry Hill House, a 300 year-old piece of gothic architecture, is the campus focal point.
