We have a very close-knit community and a friendly atmosphere at the University. We have strong research and teaching links with the creative communities around us, such as the Dundee Rep Theatre, Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre, Dundee Comics Creative Space, The McManus, and V&A Dundee.

Our courses cover a variety of topics including:

  • old and middle English
  • 18th-century, romantic and Victorian poetry and fiction
  • modernism
  • 20th- and 21st-century literature, culture and film
  • comics and graphic novels
  • post-colonial literature and theory
  • American literature
  • Scottish literature
  • women's writing
  • theatre studies

Societies and groups

We have a very successful drama group called JOOT, and an online review magazine, DURA, where you can try your hand at writing reviews
