Course content

How does literature debate and reflect humanity's relationship with 'Nature'. What makes 'the country', 'the wilderness' or 'the city' what it is. How does literature respond to environmental destruction. Is it influenced by modern environmental movements.

The MA in Literature, Landscape and Environment examines how literature reflects and shapes the way in which we see the landscape and the environment and it gives you the opportunity to study the kind of analyses that are becoming increasingly important to the direction of modern English literary studies. The MA is designed for students interested in further study or for those looking for careers in the rapidly expanding green industry.

The MA is taught by Bath Spa staff who are internationally recognised for their research in this field. In addition, we are located in a World Heritage site at the centre of a region rich with literary connections and with some of the finest landscapes in the country.
