When established, the Cambridge course was considered daringly innovative and this ethos continues to shape teaching and research.
Today’s course balances a strong grounding in the core of English literature with the chance to explore literature from around the world, other art forms, the English language, and related intellectual traditions.
Most out-of-copyright texts are available online as free e-texts that can be loaded onto an e-reader.
The cost, therefore, of Cambridge English course materials will depend on the resourcefulness of the individual student – but £500 would be a reasonable upper limit over three years.
When it comes to research, our activities are enormously varied.
Our staff and students have interests that span centuries, cross continents, and bridge disciplines.
You are taught by some of the most eminent writers and thinkers who, between them, teach and research almost every aspect of literature.
We have no set approach beyond instilling the valuable skills of critical thinking, scholarly rigour and good writing.
