This specification encourages students to understand how narrative works, to look at genre and to learn about critical approaches to texts. 

Students discover how central narrative is to the way literary texts work and they are introduced to the different aspects of genre. Encouraging wide and independent reading, the course also considers different types of critical approach and how texts can reflect cultural meanings.
