Course contentThe MA in English covers literature and popular culture in their historical contexts from the sixteenth century to the present day. It provides you with opportunities to undertake a comparative study of literature, history and film.
The MA will appeal if you are interested in combining the study of "serious" literature with popular writing, women's literature, or topics, such as Empire, American national identity, the Victorian period, Holocaust or Second World War, approached as interdisciplinary case studies from the perspective of literature, history, popular culture and film. The programme has an interdisciplinary focus, allowing you to work across subject boundaries.
