Study literature and open your mind to a world of provocative ideas and new perspectives. Our students are readers, writers and critical thinkers who engage with culture, history and language.

We offer a range of traditional and innovative courses led by award-winning faculty with a passion for teaching. Engage with writers and genres from across time and cultures; explore the classics or the very latest contemporary works; study creative writers or creative writing. Our courses offer you the opportunity to reflect deeply and think freely about the world and your own experiences within and beyond the boundaries of academic discourse.

Our focus on teaching allows us to get to know our students and work with them to become better readers, writers and thinkers.
