Course content

This MA provides you with the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of developments in contemporary literature and literatures of the past, and the opportunity to enhance your writing, communication and research skills.

The programme examines the diversity and variety of the subject, and is designed to equip you with the high-level skills necessary for further research or career progression. Optional modules include period coverage from the Renaissance to the contemporary moment.

There is flexibility to develop your own areas of interest in a particular period, genre or theme and the opportunity to gain experience of public speaking by presenting your own research at twice-yearly MA symposia. Current research in the School of English & Journalism has particular strengths in 21st Century literature, 19th Century literature, women’s writing, Gothic literature, utopianism, American fiction and drama.
