About English at Bournemouth University

From examining iconic and influential texts to cultivating your writing skills, this multifaceted course explores English in all its various forms within the context of the media. There’s a strong emphasis on honing your own writing skills, whether that’s in creative writing, journalism or academic work, opening the door to an exciting range of career possibilities.

The course is designed to give you a strong foundation in the academic study of English, while equipping you with professional skills to enhance your employability. Alongside the study of texts in print, you’ll be introduced to the latest developments in digital media and new media storytelling.

As you progress through the course and become a more independent learner, you’ll be able to select units to focus your studies in areas of English that interest you. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a four- or 30-week placement, depending on the length of degree you choose. The placement is a productive and dynamic way of putting your theory into practice, and is designed to develop your abilities and understanding of a real-world working environment. It also provides a platform for successful entry into the workplace following graduation.

The Integrated Master’s degree which is a four-year course (or five if you do a 30-week placement) allows you a smooth transition from undergraduate to Master’s level in a single degree.
