Masters degrees in Caribbean Literature examine the literary writers and movements originating within the Caribbean and its various territories, as well as external influences on Caribbean writers.
Related subjects include Caribbean Society & Culture and American Literatures. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Cultural Studies, Postcolonial Studies, or Languages and Literature.
Courses in this field offer advanced literary study emphasising African, North and South American, Asian and European influences on Caribbean Literature, from a comparative, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective.
There are many areas in which postgraduates can specialise, whether that be the Anglo-Caribbean literature of the former British West Indies, or the creole languages and related literatures which have formulated in the various Caribbean territories.
Issues covered on these courses include race and identity, women in literature, gender politics, imperialism and post-colonialism, and diaspora.
Careers with a Masters in Caribbean Literature are varied, but may include traditional roles in academia, as well as publishing, journalism and broadcasting. Other careers may include roles in heritage institutions, such as archiving and curating for museums, or public relations for and management of world heritage sites.
