MA Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture


University of Chester English

Full time October MA 1 year full-time

About the course

Join us to explore the dynamic relationship between literary texts of the long 19th century (1789-1914) and the fascinating culture from which they emerged.

Course overview

Our MA offers a rich interdisciplinary study of the key events, debates, discourses, genres, and obsessions of the revolutionary 19th-century period and its afterlives. This is an opportunity to explore an era you may be familiar with in much greater depth, and with attention to the contexts in which the texts were produced.

Why study this course with us?

The Department of English, housed in a Grade II-listed Vicarage designed by John Douglas, in an institution founded in 1839 and officially opened by Gladstone in 1842, has longstanding teaching and research strengths in 19th-century literature.
