The MA in Victorian Studies offers postgraduate students a uniquely flexible, wide ranging and affordable opportunity to study the Victorian period.
It is closely linked with the Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies which is based at Leeds Trinity University and involves other universities in the UK and beyond, in a programme of seminars, colloquia and conferences.
The Centre is also the base for The Journal of Victorian Culture, which is published in conjunction with Taylor & Francis.
Benefits of Victorian Studies
- Full or part time study: the MA is a modular degree designed to be taken at your own pace, between one and three years.
- Sessions are held in the evening, so that part time study can be combined with full time employment.
- Wide range of subjects: in addition to two broad-ranging compulsory core modules, you will have a wide range of option modules to choose from and a chance to undertake supervised research as part of your degree.
- You will undertake a 12,000 word dissertation on a Victorian topic of your choice.
- Choice of MA, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate: study for shorter periods of time, taking fewer modules, and take the Postgraduate Diploma or the Postgraduate Certificate instead of the MA Pay as you learn: the cost of the MA is phased so you can pay module by module.
- Course fees are very competitive, about half the standard cost for most taught Masters degrees.
- Bursaries are also available.
Graduates have gone on to further study: PhD and PGCE. Some of our part time students take the MA for professional development purposes, e.g. as teachers or curators.
