Our philosophy

English Literature Department iconThe 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.
