Course content

Study different ways of looking at and writing about London with this exciting MA programme. Explore literary London and how writers have responded to the city while studying in London itself.

This English MA offers the opportunity to engage with the rich and complicated literary imaginings of London through the years - from Shakespeare to the Victorians and onwards, to cinematic, postcolonial and documentary constructions of the city.

The structure is designed to be flexible, with courses taught in weekly seminars focusing on literary, theoretical and cultural texts. Broaden your knowledge of literature and your understanding of London's role in the world while exploring alternative approaches and perspectives, all within an interdisciplinary, comparative and international context.
