Explore a lively and varied collection of texts, from medieval literature and the Renaissance through to postcolonialism and postmodernism, with an English degree at Lincoln.

The BA (Hons) English course explores poetry, fiction, and drama, as well as less traditional literary forms such as life-writing and graphic novels.

Students are encouraged to consider literature within a variety of theoretical, historical, and cultural contexts, with opportunities to study Victorian literature, Modernism, Romanticism, and contemporary writing from a global perspective.

The broad range of topics enables students to pursue areas of particular interest, while individual research projects are designed to develop critical-thinking skills. Students on the course are able to develop a portfolio of creative writing pieces and can study texts from other creative industries including film, television, and advertising.

Literary study at Lincoln is enhanced by talks from visiting speakers and contemporary writers. These have included former Poet Laureate Dame Carol Ann Duffy, who is a Visiting Artist at the University of Lincoln; Chris Packham CBE, TV presenter, naturalist, and Visiting Professor; and Andrew Graham-Dixon, TV presenter and art historian.
