The MRes degree is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. It is aimed at those who wish to move beyond undergraduate work and to engage in research in depth for a postgraduate thesis, but who also wish to take modules that help develop research and related skills. On this programme you cover a broad range of poetry and fiction from English, French and Spanish Caribbean. In the process you engage with issues of Caribbean history, politics, national identity, gender and sexuality.
As part of the Caribbean Studies MRes, you take three taught modules:
You also write a dissertation of 20,000 words in the final term on a topic of your choice relevant to the focus of the programme.
