Course content

This exciting course examines the role of contemporary literature in a number of different contexts. You will have the chance to explore a diverse range of texts, across varied modules, from Modernists such as Samuel Beckett, emerging fields such as Trauma Fiction and even popular narrative mediums including film and comic books.

The MA is made up of modules and a dissertation, amounting to 180 credits. Full-time students will take two 30 credit modules in each of two terms, followed by the dissertation. The modules are set each year by the tutors, and there are no options available.

Part-time students can take the course over two or three years. In both cases, the first year will contain one module in each of two terms, amounting to 60 credits. If you choose to study over two years, the second year will contain one module in each of two terms, plus the dissertation, amounting to 120 credits. If you choose to study over three years, the second year will contain one module in each of two terms, amounting to 60 credits, and the third year will involve the dissertation only, to make up the final 60 credits.

Certain modules will be taught in the evenings (6-9 pm) allowing you to take your course entirely outside of normal working hours. Other modules may only be offered during day, which means there may not be module options for part-time study.
