The English department is part of English Literature, Creative Writing, English Language and Linguistics, in the School of Humanities which includes other departments such as Journalism.
There is fertile cross-communication between these subjects, with a number of extracurricular activities across the School, including lectures by visiting academics, readings by published and aspiring writers - including Writers in Residence such as Paul Bailey and Hanif Kureishi - dramatic performances and films. Visiting professors in the Faculty also provide input into the field.
The study of English at Kingston encourages students to take an active part within a supportive and academically stimulating environment. There is also a well-established postgraduate culture in the field, and successful students may progress to masters-level courses.
