Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Education

Double major

Programme Type


The study of literature involves an exploration of human experience, as captured by a range of individual writers across time and across cultures. Over time, a close, careful, and increasingly sensitive reading of rich texts breeds the development of a curious, critical, nuanced and self-reflexive mind, as well as an appreciation of the multiple ways in which literary texts are intimately linked to the cultures and societies that produce them. You will have the opportunity to explore and study in depth not only canonical texts but also literature from Singapore and the region, World Literature, adolescent literature, and film texts. You will also gain an increasing appreciation of the wide range of ways in which our interpretation and intuitive readings of these texts can be informed and complemented by diverse fields such as feminism, history, and psychoanalysis.
