Masters degrees in Languages, Literature & Culture study the written and spoken narratives produced by different human cultures and societies together with the media used to communicate and express them.
Students in this discipline develop an advanced understanding of the stories people tell, the languages they use to do so and the culture they express. A vast range of postgraduate specialisms are available, focussing on different regions and their peoples.
Many of these programmes are taught MA degrees. These allow students to select modules based around specific topics. Other courses award research-based qualifications based on independent project and dissertation work.
Though it may not seem vocationally orientated, postgraduate study in Languages, Literature & Culture can support a range of career goals.
Your expertise will obviously be of value in museum and heritage industries as well as more general journalism, publishing or broadcasting. Non-specialist audiences are also interested in topics like literature and cultural history, after all, and your degree will make you an expert at communicating them.
You’ll also be an expert communicator more generally, with strong writing skills and the ability to think critically and independently - all excellent contributions to your CV.
Finally, don't forget that some of these programmes are already aligned with particular careers. Postgraduate study in Modern Languages offers an excellent route into professional translation or even global business and commerce. Meanwhile, political and administrative roles often benefit from an understanding of (and sensitivity towards) local and regional cultures and their histories.
