English at Suffolk

No better place to study literature

There is no better place to study English literature than Suffolk. Our coastal villages and towns attract writers and artists from all over the world, while the county features prominently in the imagination and landscapes of classic novels.

This sense of a literary and artistic community comes to life at the University. We focus on giving you the support and encouragement you need to discover your passions and interests, share your love of literature, and develop academic rigour and creative excellence.

We encourage you to respond to literature both critically and artistically, whichever is your preference. If you are a language enthusiast, you can explore linguistics, phonology and semantics; if your main interest is creative writing, we offer practice-based modules in the short story, scriptwriting, poetry, and many more.
