Months of entry
This MA reflects the diverse and wide-ranging research and teaching interests of the School of English. The MA’s design allows you either to focus your study on a specific period or concept of literature, or to engage broadly with writing and cultural and theoretical ideas across a wide historic range. You can combine specialist study in literature written before 1900, contemporary theoretical inquiry, and interdisciplinary investigations into literature and visual culture or literature and history according to your particular interests.
Core modules engage with current theoretical ideas and conceptual methods that underpin research in literature and help equip you for further study and research inside and outside academia.
You are assessed by two exercises of 3,000 words for the core module, three 5,000-word term papers in the option modules and and a dissertation of up to 15,000 words.
