Course content

Our MA in English Literary Studies is the most flexible of all our MAs and the only one that allows you to select modules from across the whole range offered by the Department.

There are no compulsory modules on this MA: you simply choose the four modules which interest you most. It thus provides exceptional opportunities if you want to work across different literary periods and genres.

Options range from modules on poetry or drama from the medieval to the modern, to modules on gender or space from the Renaissance through to the postmodern. You could choose some of our modules on film or postcolonial studies, or, in some cases, select an option module from another department - such as History, Politics or Philosophy - and enrich your options even further.

You will develop an understanding of:
-The engagement of English literature with a range of political, social and aesthetic issues
-The cultural meanings and associations of the variety of styles, genres and media in which English literature was produced
-A range of different critical and theoretical perspectives on advanced literary study

Assessment

-Four assessed essays of approximately 4,500 words each
-A 14,000-16,000 word dissertation, written in consultation with a supervisor on an agreed topic
