The department of English has an internationally renowned academic team and a strong research ethos. We focus on the development of English literature and the functioning of written and spoken English through time and around the world.
Unusually for a Higher Education department of English, we combine the study of language, literature and creative writing in highly flexible, imaginatively taught programmes.
Typically over 90% of our undergraduate students achieve a first class or 2:1 degree and we see high completion rates from our large postgraduate masters and doctoral student community.
English graduates from the University of Liverpool are highly skilled, imaginative and knowledgeable. They are equipped, as employees and as citizens, to influence thinking around them and to engage in debate about the future.
These are qualities they develop through rigorous academic training and effective and targeted work experience gained with our numerous partners in Liverpool's dynamic arts and culture scene.
