Think studying for an English degree is all about Shakespeare and Jane Austen? - Think again!

At Northumbria our academics passions and interests span far and wide from Bret Easton Ellis’ Less Than Zero to graphic novels such as League of Extraordinary Gentleman and the gripping TV smash Homeland. That’s not to say you won’t find classics by the likes of Shakespeare in your reading list – Senior Lecturer Adam would never allow that – he just prefers to teach it by shaking it up with his module on Shaking up Shakespeare.
