Studying for an English degree at Goldsmiths is an interdisciplinary and invigorating experience, and we're one of the top 200 departments worldwide. We are distinctive in the intellectual range of our teaching and research. Our main field of critical inquiry extends from Old English literature to twenty-first century literatures in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
Our earliest focus is on Classical literature and our latest on Creative Writing. In this new writing, our conspicuous strength springs from those staff and students who contribute directly to some of the literatures studied. We read the literatures of yesterday and today, and write literature for tomorrow.
The Graduate School at Goldsmiths offers an interdisciplinary, intellectual space for postgraduate students. It enhances the student experience through facilities and support via our academic departments and staff. We promote intellectual and social contact across disciplines and build on the excellent work of our research-focused academic departments.
History at Goldsmiths promotes intellectual curiosity and independent critical thinking.

From the Leveson Inquiry to the future of the BBC, the study of Media and Communications addresses the important questions of our times. At Goldsmiths, that study is creative and critical. We focus on a broad understanding of media and communications, looking at a range of areas from philosophical perspectives on technology and human life and the role of news in a democracy to global screen cultures, and issues of identity.
