Course content

The MA pathway in Nineteenth-Century Studies will give you the opportunity to specialise in the culture and history of the nineteenth century. It is taught by world-leading experts in the period who are as passionate about the subject as you are, and is linked to the Southampton Centre for Nineteenth-Century Research. It will empower you to conduct advanced-level research and independent critical thinking in the field; to make effective use of archives, manuscripts, and research libraries; and examine how nineteenth- century literature and print culture shaped our understanding of education, class, consumerism, sexuality, science, economics, and more. Not only will you emerge with an internationally-recognised masters degree from a top Russell Group university, you will also acquire the critical thinking and writing skills that will give you the competitive edge, either as a future scholar or as a professional in areas such as secondary school teaching, librarianship, museums and galleries, publishing and roles in the heritage industry.
