Faculty of Arts and Humanities - University of East Anglia

Presentación

The BA American and English Literature is a four-year degree programme offering a distinctive emphasis on the literature of the United States, alongside the study of English literature. The degree combines the study of American and English literature within a framework which allows you to develop and pursue areas of particular interest.

The third year of this degree programme is spent abroad, providing you with an invaluable academic and cultural experience, one that most students consider to be the highlight of their time at university. You will spend the majority of the third year studying in America or Canada - with the option of spending a semester in Australia, New Zealand, or Hong Kong. This opportunity allows you to appreciate American and English literature from a different perspective; furthermore some institutions will provide you with internship placements in organisations such as publishers, newspapers and TV stations. See the “Year Abroad” tab for more details.
