This programme provides graduates with an outstanding opportunity to further both research and foreign language skills through a tailored programme which is unique in the UK.
The MRes programme focuses on research and, as such, is broken down into three modules, which focus on research skills, language acquisition, and key moments in the history of modern European culture.
Cultural and Gender Studies Research Methodologies (20 Credits)
Intellectual Subversives: Culture, Counter-Culture and Radical Change, from the Late 18th Century to the Digital Age (20 Credits)
Reading a Language (French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish) for Researchers (20 Credits)
Academic Writing in Another Language (French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish) (20 Credits)
This is followed by a dissertation, which is the result of a supervised independent research project undertaken in any area of research which falls within the very wide range of expertise of staff across all of the languages.
