This innovative and interdisciplinary MA programme combines taught modules and a dissertation and allows you to share your year between Canterbury and Paris.
You choose from our full range of MA literature modules, which is regularly added to by academics keen to explore new areas of thinking with students and to draw you in to our established areas of research strength.
This programme allows you to spend your first term at our Canterbury campus with full access to its excellent academic and recreational facilities. For the spring term you relocate to our Paris centre, studying in a historic corner of Montparnasse - close to the famous Latin Quarter, the Sorbonne University and the glorious Jardin du Luxembourg.
