Why Study Modern Languages (MRes) with us?

The MRes in Modern Languages comprises two key elements: a double core module focusing on research methodology (40 credits) and an extended dissertation (140 credits). The Research Dissertation module is divided into three stages, during which you will work closely with your dissertation supervisor exploring, firstly, the existing literature on your topic; secondly, planning your research project; and finally, writing up your dissertation.

You will choose the topic of your dissertation in consultation with the Programme Leader and it will reflect your own research interests and the Department's research specialisms.

The Department offers supervision in a range of Modern Languages and Area Studies topics. We have particular strengths in postcolonial, political and cultural studies in the francophone, Hispanic and Chinese-speaking worlds, as well as visual cultures and literary specialisms in peninsular Spain, France and mainland China.
