Welcome to the School of English & Journalism
The School of English & Journalism brings together two areas concerned with how we understand and interpret the world around us. Our students work alongside leading academics at the cutting edge of research and practice. Industry-standard news production facilities, extensive work experience opportunities in journalism and broadcasting.
Amongst our academics are internationally recognised researchers and practitioners; some are award-winning journalists and leading authors. The School has a vibrant research culture and hosts regular research seminars, and a programme of lectures by visiting professionals from the journalism and PR industries.
The School’s research profile includes expertise in Shakespeare and his contemporaries, the Victorian sensation novel, 21st Century fiction, women and the press, and peace journalism.
We maintain strong links with a number of prominent organisations, including the BBC, newspapers, broadcasters, publishing houses, magazines and PR practitioners, ensuring that our students and their future career continue to be the core focus of the School.
