Course content

Contemporary culture highlights a reawakened interest in the Gothic – from the current vogue for horror film and the extraordinary success of writers such as Stephen King and Stephenie Meyer, to manifestations of an alternative Gothic impulse in fashion, music and lifestyle.

The University of Stirling’s MLitt The Gothic Imagination course gives you the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the scholarly appreciation of the Gothic. Ours is one of the few Masters courses worldwide that is devoted exclusively to the academic study of the dynamic and ever-expanding field of Gothic studies.

We provide a rigorous and intensive historical survey of the Gothic’s literary origins and developments, and chart its dispersal across a broad range of media and national contexts.

The course will equip you with the necessary theoretical vocabulary to address, and critically reflect upon, the Gothic as a complex and multi-faceted cultural phenomenon. It also prepares you for further postgraduate research in the rich and vibrant field of Gothic Studies. Graduates will leave with many invaluable transferable skills, including critical thinking, theoretical conceptualisation, historical periodisation and independent research.

Course objectives

Long acknowledged as a centre of excellence for the study of the Gothic aesthetic worldwide, the division of English Studies at Stirling has historically been the home of leading Gothic scholars for the last two decades. That means you’ll have the opportunity to work closely with some of the leading researchers in the field. You’ll be encouraged to present your research in appropriate contexts, including conferences organised by the International Gothic Association.

Our MLitt in The Gothic Imagination enjoys a strong international reputation, and we’re proud to have welcomed students from Argentina, Canada, Greece, Mexico, India, Indonesia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and the USA.

With high levels of choice and flexibility built into its course structure, our MLitt allows you to develop your own critical interests under the specialist guidance of recognised experts in the broad and exciting field of Gothic Studies.
