Discover English – Tuesday, 28 June 2016

This Discover English day will give you a taste of the range of opportunities available within the study of English as well as the diverse range of potential career opportunities that this degree will open up to you.

Studying English, creative writing and drama subjects at Manchester allows you access to many themes, texts and theories, ranging from classical literature, and creative writing, through to social media, the stage and even the role of English language in education.

Courses at Manchester explore English literature, English language, drama, screen studies and American studies. Different periods are studied, including Victorian literature, 18th-century and post-war texts, and courses include a range of media, including books, poems, drama, film, and even music and TV.

Throughout the day, you’ll see how degrees in English and associated subjects create graduates with highly developed language and communication skills; a greater capacity for both team-working and independent working; and exceptional critical and analytical skills.

If you’re interested in communication, presentation, the power of language, and the relationship of English and drama studies to global history, politics and business, and the arts, then you’ll be sure to enjoy and be enthused by this day.
