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.
