Course content

The Reading for Life MSc, the first of its kind in the country, is concerned with the wider and deeper ways in which serious creative literature ‘finds’ people, emotionally and imaginatively, by offering living models and visions of human troubles and human possibilities.

The programme uses books of all kinds – novels, poetry, drama, essays in philosophy and theology – and books from all periods – from Shakespeare to the present to help you to develop the ability, the confidence and enthusiasm to use all literature as a form of personal time-travel and meditation. You will also learn how, in turn, you may re-create this process for others, through the formation of equivalent reading-groups based on the innovative and successful shared read aloud project run in various locations across the country (schools, hostels for homeless people, community libraries, day centres for the elderly, rehabilitation and drop-in centres, prisons) by the award-winning charity, The Reader.

The programme is run part-time over two years at our Liverpool campus and is available to be studied on a CPD basis at our London campus.
