About

The Warnborough College PhD in the Sociology of Literature looks at how literature has shaped and changed society over the ages.

Overview

Should we study a society in order to understand literature better or should we study literary works to learn about the society or age in which they were written? Do you believe literature can be used to influence its own times and perhaps the future? Alternatively, if a given society wants to impose its religious or ideological standpoint on authors, do you believe the latter safeguard and express their independence?

The Sociology of Literature course at Warnborough College examines all of these questions as it looks at the impact literature has on society.

Individual modules may either be combined with those from other programs, or transferred to other institutions with approval. The College does not exclude viable alternative themes proposed by students, subject to mentor and College approval.

Careers

The graduate program in the Sociology of Literature from Warnborough College is suitable for students who intend to develop professional careers in a wide range of settings.

The rigorous intellectual training that literary analysis provides has value and appeal to employers in areas such as: teaching (most likely at the college level), course development and curricula design, research, civil service, local government, charities, information technology, solicitor’s firms, publishing, journalism etc.
