Stage Two English Literary Studies is a twenty credit (full year) course, focused on the skills and strategies of critical thinking needed to interpret the representation of culture and identity in texts and the exploration of the dynamic relationship between authors, texts, audiences and contexts. Students develop an understanding of how texts challenge or support cultural perceptions, exchange and develop literary ideas, and learn to construct logical and convincing arguments through a range of critical interpretations of literary texts.
