English Undergraduate Degrees

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Studying English at SOAS offers an exciting new approach to an established academic discipline. Building on SOAS’s existing strengths and expertise in the study of language and literature from around the world, the programmes takes a global perspective on Anglophone literature and literary cultures.

The degree introduces students to the processes through which the English language and its literatures have spread across the globe, including trade, war, colonisation, globalisation and digitisation.

Our teaching emphasises dialogue, placing the literary canon in conversation with Anglophone texts from around the world, and especially Africa, Asia, the Near and Middle East, Australia and the Caribbean.

Students are encouraged to explore a wide range of regional topics and disciplines, while independent research projects, field trips, guest seminars and networking events immerse students in London’s rich, multicultural literary heritage. Characterised by robust research-led teaching, this inclusive, globally-oriented programme of study is the first of its kind in the UK, and represents a rigorous and stimulating alternative to the traditional curriculum of other universities.
