The Department publishes its own journal, Nottingham French Studies, founded in 1961. The Department also has a thriving postgraduate community.

This programme offers students the opportunity to conduct a sustained piece of research in a wide range of disciplines in French and Francophone Studies. Thanks to our exceptionally wide range of research expertise we can offer supervision of research degrees at MA and PhD level across the chronological spread of French studies, including the following areas: medieval literature, early modern literature and thought, 19th, 20th and 21st century literature, contemporary French culture, society and politics, French thought and critical theory, feminist and gender studies, Francophone and postcolonial studies, cinema and the visual arts, linguistics and translation studies.

Students who wish to proceed to take a PhD are required to have completed an MA course in order to acquire the necessary research skills in their chosen field of study. We require all MA students to
follow a module of research training that is delivered jointly by staff within the Department and the Graduate School which offers courses of generic training.

The course can be completed one year full-time or two years part-time and comprises:

• a course of guided reading under the supervision of the appropriate member(s) of staff
• a module of research training in research methodology and presentation
• attendance, at the regular French postgraduate work-in-progress seminars

Information about staff research interests and publications can be found at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/french

Assessment

Students submit a 30,000-word dissertation deriving from their directed reading and completed under the supervision of the appropriate member(s) of staff. The research module is also assessed.

wide range of careers.

This innovative, interdisciplinary MA provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the critical tradition that shapes today’s human and social sciences.

Taught by an interdisciplinary team with expertise in areas such as literary theory, continental philosophy, psychoanalysis, cultural studies and political theory, the course will appeal to students, especially those graduating from cultural studies or general humanities degrees, who are interested in further studies that emphasise theoretical approaches while maintaining a focus on their application to contemporary cultural events and practices.

The largely seminar-based teaching allows students to actively engage with thinkers as diverse as Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Pierre Bourdieu and Jean Baudrillard, whilst exploring key critical theoretical discourses in the humanities and their application to concrete cultural practices.

Students join a thriving postgraduate community and are encouraged to take part in the Department’s various reading groups, Work in Progress seminars, visiting speaker lectures, and research seminars which combine to create a lively, intellectually stimulating, and supportive learning environment.

Course Structure

The MA in Critical Theory and Cultural Studies may be followed one year full-time or two-three years part-time – and we do our best to accommodate the needs of part-time students.

Full-time students take two core modules in the first semester and two optional modules in the second semester – one of which can be chosen from another related MA programme – and submit a dissertation. Part-time students complete this allocation within 24-36 months.

Core modules may include:
• Cultural Studies: Theory and Practice
• Material Cultures and Everday Life
• Research Skills
• Social and Political Theories
• Subject and Sign after Freud and Saussure

Optional second semester modules may include:
• Mass Media
• Postcolonialisms
• Culture Industries
• Visual Cultures

All students are assigned a personal tutor as well as a dissertation tutor to guide them through their coursework.

Information about our research interests and publications is available at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/clas/research/index.aspx

Assessment

All taught modules are assessed by a 5,000-word assignment, submitted towards the end of the semester in which the module is
taught. Students also submit a 20,000-word dissertation, usually in early September. There are no examinations.

Test results should be no more than two years old.

Careers

Written coursework encourages the development of the scholarly tools required for doctoral research, and many of our graduates go on to pursue further studies at doctoral level. The course also provides students with a high degree of cultural awareness and literacy useful for careers in the media, advertising and public relations.

Course structure

The MA is structured around core modules in translation theory and practice, use of technological translating tools, training and practice in bi-lateral interpreting, and advanced English or Chinese skills, as appropriate to the native language of the student.

Optional modules allow the acquisition or extension of skills in a language other than English or Chinese, or development of existing expertise for technical translation purposes. These modules are taught across two semesters, running from the end of September to the following June. The remaining time is allocated to the preparation and submission of a targeted translation project with commentary, for submission in September. If appropriate arrangements can be made, the project may be a practical exercise undertaken during a placement with a local public body or charity.

The first semester modules can be taken separately as a Postgraduate Certificate in Chinese/English Translation and Interpreting. The first and second semester modules can be taken as a Diploma in Chinese/English Translation and Interpreting.

While providing generic training in the theory and practice of translating and interpreting, the course is dedicated to translation and interpreting between the specific languages and cultures of English and Chinese. It is therefore able to target specific theoretical, technical and practical issues relating to this particular cultural interface.
