Course content

MPhil/PhD-level study is for English graduates, currently without a masters degree or equivalent postgraduate experience, who want to develop their knowledge of a specific area of English studies to a high level of academic achievement.

The MPhil/PhD is largely non-taught and your main submission will be a thesis written under the supervision of a member of staff (the director of studies) with expertise in the area chosen. Additional support is available from other internal/external academics. Your thesis will be a piece of original research that makes a significant contribution to scholarly knowledge in your particular field of study.

The broad topic to be investigated will be defined by you with more specific details agreed through discussion with the director of studies.

Particular areas of expertise in the department are the work of Virginia Woolf, women’s writing in the 19th and 20th centuries, Modernism, children’s literature, and literary and cultural theory.

Available Projects

Projects are available in the areas detailed in the 'research topics' section, above. Before submitting a formal application you should contact the postgraduate research degree admissions tutor in English to discuss the area in which you wish to work.

A more detailed proposal of a research topic will then be agreed between you and the supervisor(s) as part of the formal application process.
