Why study this Literary Studies - Pathway in Shakespeare Early and Modern programme, offered by Goldsmiths, University of London?
- You’ll deepen your understanding of Elizabethan literature, looking at the historical and cultural contexts behind its production, how it evolved and how it’s received by modern day readers.
- You’ll read a wide range of texts, from different media, periods, and cultural, geographical and linguistic backgrounds.
- Being based in London, you’ll be able to make the most of the city’s thriving literary and performance scenes. We’re only a short train ride away from the Globe theatre, where you’ll be able to see Shakespeare plays performed first-hand.
- Our optional ‘Text in Performance’ module gives you the chance to work directly with one of England’s most respected theatre directors, Bill Alexander (Honorary Associate of the Royal Shakespeare Company). In this module, you’ll explore how a play is read and analysed in the rehearsal room and how its language and imagery shapes character and performance choices.

- enhanced communication and discussion skills in written and oral contexts
- the ability to analyse and evaluate different textual materials
