Course content

This programme welcomes you to a lively intellectual and cultural scene, at a university ranked in the world’s top 50 for English Literature (QS World University Rankings 2017). You will study with world-class experts in Victorian literature whose interests range across many aspects of literature and culture. You’ll be able to draw on the extraordinary resources of Glasgow’s museums and libraries and have the opportunity to meet with visiting scholars from around the UK, Europe and the United States.

  • At the height of the nineteenth century, during the two Great Exhibitions of 1881 and 1901 in Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow was often called the ‘Second City of the Empire’. This M.Litt. offers a chance to come and study Victorian literature in this impressive historical city with its fantastic heritage.
  • You will be taught by a team of highly qualified researchers and lecturers with an international reputation for research and teaching in Victorian literature.
  • You will benefit from direct access to our outstanding holdings of Victorian primary and critical sources within the Special Collections of the University Library and the Hunterian Gallery and Museum.
  • We offer an exciting series of workshops tailored to research on Victorian topics, including tours of Glasgow University’s Special Collections, workshops on electronic resources, and field trips to sites of special interest such as the Murray Collection in the National Library of Scotland, Robert Owen’s New Lanark, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.
