Course content

Our new MA in Poetry provides the unique opportunity to study historical and contemporary poetic practices while studying in London, the heart of the nation’s creative industries. The programme offers a distinctive mix of specialised attention to the genre of poetry, the chance to develop your own poetic practice, and arranged work placements within the cultural and creative sector.

Drawing on the resources and expertise of Queen Mary’s Centre for Poetry, the programme is flexible and genuinely interdisciplinary. You will be able to pursue your own analytical and creative projects, driven by the work you’ll do on an extensive list of optional modules from Schools across the College. Modules allow you to pursue topics as diverse as modernist poetry; sociolinguistics; or art and the geography of the city. The programme’s flexibility prepares you for doctoral study, or allows you to pursue careers in the creative or cultural sectors. You will also have opportunities to deepen your own poetic practice.

On this pathway you will:
- Explore historic and contemporary theoretical and critical approaches to the study of poetry
- Pursue interdisciplinary approaches to poetry through choosing from a wide selection of modules offered in English, Languages, Linguistics, Film, Geography, and History
- Undertake a placement with a literary or cultural organisation, a publisher, an educational institution, or a community group
- Work alongside leading academics and contemporary poets
- Develop advanced skills in argumentation, analysis, and independent inquiry.
