Find a course

Our courses give you the chance to specialise and explore your own research interests in depth, or to embrace an exhilarating range of English and related literature. With coverage ranging from ancient Greek and Latin to literature being published right now, we have a unique approach to what literature is and does, how we read it, how we write about it, and even how we make it.

As a student at York, you’ll engage with the stimulating research culture of the Department of English and Related Literature. You'll join a vibrant graduate community with a diverse schedule of seminars, conferences and reading groups for you to attend. You’ll also be part of the Humanities Research Centre, an interdisciplinary hub which will enable you to form close social and intellectual bonds over the course of your study.
