English Literature 3+1+1 and Denver

English Literature students from the University of Denver can take the fourth year of their degree abroad at the University of Glasgow, followed by a Master's degree at the University of Glasgow.

Your year abroad at Glasgow (Year 4)

English Literature courses change each year but you'll be able to choose from a number of specialist fields, including:

  • children’s literature
  • the contemporary novel
  • fantasy and science fiction
  • Irish and Scottish literature
  • literature and ecology
  • creative writing
  • literary theory
  • modernist and avant-garde literature
  • postcolonial literatures.

In Scotland and the rest of the UK, a full year comprises 120 credits. Therefore, you'll need to take 120 credits in your year abroad in order to graduate from the University of Denver with a Bachelor's degree.

Each course you can choose from is usually worth 20 credits, so you will choose six English Literature courses at Year 4 level. You may also choose to write a dissertation (40 credits) alongside four Year 4 classes.

Your Master's Degree at Glasgow (Year 5)

After you complete your University of Denver Bachelor degree and year abroad, you can study for a postgraduate degree at Glasgow in one of our English Literature programmes:
