Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

The Humanities Foundation Year provides you with a solid grounding tailored to your individual needs, helping you to progress to the subsequent years of a humanities degree programme, includingcore modules designed to develop and embed key academic and employability skills with intensive modules which provide the requisite background for specific honours courses for those without the necessary qualifications, and additional modules to prepare you for your future degree course and broaden your skills and knowledge by. In this case English Literature, will allow you to engage imaginatively with a wide range of contemporary and historical literature,
focusing particularly on tradition, innovation, and diversity.

At Keele we know that
English literature is literature written in English, and this can originate from many
places: the United Kingdom, the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. So at Keele, you’ll explore the significance of texts within their
originating cultures and historical periods and explore a range of
approaches to literary study. You’ll consider the historical, sociopolitical,
economic, gender and geographical contexts of fiction,
poetry and drama from the medieval period to the present day.
You might explore links between literature and film, or engage with
exciting new genres such as the graphic novel. You’ll become an
imaginative and critical thinker as you explore subjects such as the
importance of story, the novel, writing for the screen, post-colonialism,
depictions of maternity and scandal.

Studying English at Keele will mean you’ll graduate with a wide range of skills –
in research, oral and written communication, presentation – as well
as excellent opportunities for the future. Some careers may require
further study or training, but you might work as a teacher, journalist,
editor, librarian, advertising copywriter, solicitor, arts administrator or
writer. You could go into marketing, research, broadcasting, publishing,
the compiling of dictionaries, or teaching English as a foreign language.
