Months of entry
Our Science Fiction masters is designed to provide you with an understanding of the genre of science fiction and its relationship to different genres, national cultures, and media, covering:
- the history of Science Fiction in literature, film and comics
- the study of different sub-genres of Science Fiction
- the issues of representation and ideology in Science Fiction
- a dissertation on a Science Fiction related topic of your choice.
The course is inherently interdisciplinary in its approach, and will foster creativity and ingenuity in developing critical approaches to the work.
You'll also benefit from the close relationship between the University of Dundee and Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre (DCA), which includes a cinema and runs a programme of screenings, talks and events related to our masters courses. There are also a range of annual activities and events at the University of Dundee which will be of great interest to students enrolled on the course, such as seminars and workshops by professional writers and artists, and visiting scholars.
