A course provides students with knowledge in a certain subject, and may be taken to further professional qualifications or it may help a student transfer over from one phase of academic learning to another.

What is a course in English literature? A course may give students an introduction to what the subject is all about, or it may help graduate students further their studies. Some of the topics that may be touched on include 17th and 18th century literature, the Renaissance, romantic prose, Victorian literature and modernist literature. Students may be introduced to well-known authors from the major time periods, and will learn how to analyze literature. Certain graduate programs will allow students to concentrate on specific areas. 

Taking a course in English literature is beneficial in a number of ways. For some students, it may fulfill a prerequisite for their major, while for others it will help enhance their current career by developing their communication and analytical skills.

Cost can be a big determinant in deciding which school to attend. Keep in mind that tuition can vary from one country to another and that the reputation of the school can also be a factor. Contacting each school directly is the best way to find out specific fees and tuition.

While taking one course will not lead directly to a career, there are a variety of career opportunities for graduates who focus on English literature. Some common areas in which individuals may find jobs include publishing, journalism and media, PR and advertising, the arts and teaching. Taking an English literature course may also help other degree majors find work in the areas of law, social work, business and politics.
