BA in English Literature and Community Engagement at Bristol University

Bristol University’s English Department is now recruiting for its part-time BA (Hons) in English Literature and Community Engagement for September 2010. This is an undergraduate degree, taught one evening per week (plus occasional Saturdays) over six years.

The degree is the first in this country to combine literary study and community work throughout the programme. Each student will have the opportunity to study a full range of literature in English and also to run a reading group in the community (or at their workplace) as part of their studies.
