Combine your love of English language and literature, and develop a range of professional skills with this highly flexible English degree. Bringing together the study of literature from the Renaissance to the present day with the study of language in social and cultural contexts, you'll gain specialist skills in analysis, close reading and writing.

Your English degree will also develop transferable skills that can be adapted in many ways, ensuring you'll be prepared to succeed in many careers that need good, thoughtful communicators.

USW's English degree also offers the option to study TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) modules, where you can learn specific skills in teaching English, a field where many English graduates gain employment.

There is a lively culture of writing at the University of South Wales: your lecturers are leading researchers and writers in various forms, and we have many visiting poets, bloggers and novelists. Specialist areas at USW include Gothic, Celtic literature and myth and narrative. The anthology of student writing, DAPS, is produced entirely by students.
