The MA in English Literature is aimed at offering students an opportunity to combine a broad-based course of postgraduate study in the field of modern writing in English with a focused interrogation of a selected area of the literary heritage of the English language. In addition, a creative writing pathway provides students interested in using their experience of reading and their literary-critical skills and insights to inform their own writing practice with an opportunity to develop individual writing projects and to reflect, in a self-analytical way, on their own engagement in creative work.

Course detail

- Description -

The course offers a programme which is broad-ranging in terms of its coverage of a variety of areas of the literary tradition of the English language In line with recent trends in postgraduate taught courses across the UK, it integrates generic elements, such as the study of critical theory and the development of research skills, with more focused text-based exploration of a variety of key issues in modern literary studies, and with the study of Irish writing in English, which gives the course a distinctive regional identity; at the same time, the provision of a variety of specialist options, both at the taught stage of the programme and in the dissertation/creative project component provides students an opportunity to specialise in a particular area of modern English literary studies, the options on offer reflecting the breadth of research and teaching expertise across the English subject group.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

Transferable skills are practised and enhanced through all the forms of teaching and learning used on the programme, particularly in seminar work and in independent study, including in particular study of secondary literature, planning and delivery of presentations, and preparation of assignments.

Assessment: coursework essays, oral presentations, as well as either extended essays or creative writing portfolios and accompanying reflective work. At dissertation/creative project stage, the achievement by students of those intellectual skills is measured by the dissertation/creative writing portfolio.

Career options

Students graduating with the MA in English Literature are well-prepared to undertake a variety of occupations, both those related directly to the nature of literary study as an academic discipline and to the subject-specific skills acquired in the course of the programme, and those of a more generally defined postgraduate-level variety. Some typical careers followed by graduates from the course include teaching, publishing, bookselling, librarianship, archive work, media work, public relations, advertising, marketing, and administration. The MA also responds to a demand from serving teachers of English who wish to develop their own knowledge and advance their careers. For both full-time and part-time students, the course offers a useful bridge to further research work at the doctoral level.
