[Overview]

Newman’s MA programme in Victorian Studies fuses historical, literary and philosophical approaches to the Victorian period to provide you with a deep and holistic understanding of the Victorian era. Situated in the ‘leading Victorian city of the age’ (Asa Briggs, 1962), Newman provides the ideal setting to study the Victorians. The course will make use of the facilities of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, home of one of the finest nineteenth century art collections in the UK.

[What will the course cover?]

Most other masters programmes in Victorian Studies tend to take a predominantly literary approach to the period, with only one or two discrete modules addressing historical or theological approaches. By contrast, Newman’s MA offers a truly interdisciplinary perspective on this fascinating period of history.

New methods of cultural and linguistic analysis in history and theology have created an academic climate in which barriers between subjects have become more porous. This course will offer modules that genuinely cross traditional curricular boundaries to truly reflect current academic scholarship and to offer an innovative approach to the subject.

[Assessment]

The course will be assessed through a series of coursework tasks, initially submitted online. There will be compulsory seminars at which students will be required to present their interim research, and there will be a capstone dissertation project.

[Attendance]

The course will run one evening per week over 12 months with 4 to 5 Saturday sessions, along with additional online activities run via Newman’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). There will be a further 3 months for the completion of the dissertation. The first module will be delivered online. Evening classes will take place at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Saturday sessions will be taught at Newman.

[Special Features]

You will be supported by a History department with an outstanding reputation for quality of teaching and student support. You will also benefit from the use of the facilities of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
