Course content

The MA allows you to range widely across English studies rather than confine yourself to a narrow field and draws on the individual research expertise of members of staff. From the student’s point of view the MA is openly structured. You define your own pathway through the Department’s MA provision. This means that as well as choosing modules from English, you can select modules in any combination from the other specialist MAs offered by the Department, such as Welsh Writing in English and Gender and Culture.

Modules typically include:

  • Research Practice (in English)
  • ‘The Unsex’d Females’: Women Writers and the French Revolution
  • Women Writing India
  • The Romantic Sublime
  • Fascism and Culture
  • Neo-Victorian Mutinies: Gender & Racial Trauma in Neo-Victorian Fiction (& Film)
