English Literature at Glasgow

For 160 years, Glasgow has been a leading national and international centre for the study of literatures in English. We are proud of this history but also focused on the future of English Literature. Our students at undergraduate and postgraduate level undertake research-led courses taught by academics at the forefront of the discipline.

From early modern drama to modern children’s literature; from contemporary ecological fiction, to the American novel, to postcolonial writing, English Literature at Glasgow offers cutting-edge programmes that will stretch you intellectually and help you to develop practical skills for your future career. 

The current Head of English Literature is Professor Adrian Streete.
