Academic English (EAS1040)

15 credits

This module aims to provide new undergraduate students of English with the discipline-specific skills you need in order to make the most of your degree including skills in close reading, critical analysis, research, writing and referencing. It invites you to work closely with a single tutor in small seminar groups and to study a range of texts which, while close to the tutor’s own broad field of teaching and research interests, will also include a range of genres, styles and historical and cultural contexts.

The module will pay specific attention to academic writing, including everything from mechanics to sophisticated essay construction.
