Progression and Career Opportunities

English Literature can be studied as a single subject or can be combined with English Language or a wide range of other subjects.
It can lead to a number of English related degrees, specifically creative writing and journalism, and it could be a core subject for a teaching qualification.

English Literature was my favourite subject because of the friendly atmosphere and approach to teaching.
