The MLitt in Cultural Identity Studies is a one-year taught programme run by the Cultural Identity Studies Institute (CISI), part of the School of Modern Languages. The programme explores the contemporary problem of collective identities as modelled by and expressed in national culture.
- The programme draws on the literary and linguistic expertise of the School of Modern Languages as well as on perspectives of related academic disciplines of critical theory.
- Students may choose to specialise in Arabic, French, Italian, German, Spanish or Russian.
- Students receive training in traditional and new research techniques and have the opportunity to broaden their language portfolios.
The taught portion of the course consists of four compulsory modules and a range of optional modules held over two semesters. Classes are delivered through a mixture of lectures (with around 20 students) and seminars (which vary from individual one-to-one teaching up to ten students). Modules are assessed through coursework; there are no final exams for this programme.
You will spend the summer months focusing on researching and writing a final dissertation of no more than 15,000 words.
Each module typically comprises:
- 1.5 to 2-hour weekly seminars and lectures
- 100% coursework assessment.
For more details of each module, including weekly contact hours, teaching methods and assessment, please see the latest module catalogue which is for the 2017–2018 academic year; some elements may be subject to change for 2018 entry.
