Course content

The MA Victorian Studies offers you the chance to explore Victorian life, culture and society, in all their variety and complexity, through studying literature, the arts, and social trends.

The Leeds Trinity MA Victorian Studies is a genuinely interdisciplinary programme, giving you the chance to explore the literature, history, society, thought, arts and culture of the Victorians from a variety of perspectives. Taught courses delivered through evening sessions, give you the chance to gain skills and knowledge that you will then apply in completing a dissertation on a Victorian topic of your choice.

This programme will help you to develop the skills in research, analysis and synthesis that you will need to progress to a research degree, as well as detailed knowledge of a range of topics within Victorian Studies.

The MA Victorian Studies could lead on to a PhD, or to a career in teaching or the heritage industry.
