About English Literature & Language
Masters degrees in English Literature & Language give students the chance to explore and analyse literature written in English, as well as the history, grammar and pronunciation of the English language.
These Masters typically focus on aspects of English within a particular context, such as Mediaeval & Early Modern Literature. However, some programmes do take a broader, more holistic approach to the subject, allowing you to make connections between difference branches of the discipline.
Related subject areas include Film Studies, Linguistics and American Literature.
English Literature & Language programmes aren’t just an opportunity to write about your favourite author; they’re also some of the most diverse and versatile courses around, affording you a great deal of freedom to carve your own niche in a specific area of English literature or language.
Career prospects reflect this variety, and you can find English Literature & Language postgraduates in many different disciplines and sectors. Their research, analytical and written skills are particularly valued in jobs in journalism, publishing, academia and advertising.
