The MLitt in Romantic/Victorian Studies is an intensive one-year taught programme which considers texts and topics from across the 18th and 19th centuries.


  • Develop your skills as a researcher within a specific area of study by taking special topic modules. 
  • Study Romantic and Victorian literature in relation to a diverse range of ideologies, including discourses of revolution and reform, debates about gender, and aestheticism. 
  • Strengthen your knowledge of the historical, cultural, and critical contexts of nineteenth-century literature.
  • Acquire experience of independent research through work on a postgraduate dissertation.

Teaching format

Taught modules consist of weekly seminars and group discussions with class sizes ranging from three to ten students. Modules are assessed through coursework essays. The School of English prides itself on its support of student work through detailed feedback and commentary.

During the course of the year, but particularly during the last four months, students will research and write a 15,000-word dissertation on a topic of their choosing.
