Course content

The MA English Literature at Winchester is designed for students who want to enhance and develop their skills in reading and writing by working on closely focussed projects drawn from any area of English Literature.

Modules offer study in a wide range of periods and genres, and teach the critical, theoretical and methodological means to understand, to an advanced level, the cultural forms that tell us who we are. The programme will explore up to date and innovative research skills in order to encourage students to flourish and become independent thinkers and learners, giving them confidence and preparing them for an increasingly competitive market place for jobs or in academia.
