The MRes programme focuses on research and, as such, is broken down into three modules, which focus on research skills, language acquisition, and key moments in the history of modern European culture.
Cultural and Gender Studies Research Methodologies (20 Credits) Intellectual Subversives: Culture, Counter-Culture and Radical Change, from the Late 18th Century to the Digital Age (20 Credits)
Reading a Language (French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish) for Researchers (20 Credits)
Academic Writing in Another Language (French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish) (20 Credits)
This is followed by a dissertation, which is the result of a supervised independent research project undertaken in any area of research which falls within the very wide range of expertise of staff across all of the languages.
The University of Birmingham’s Modern Languages department has detailed knowledge across the full range of modern European culture, but particular strengths lie in:
Memory and Exile Translation and Language Studies Sexuality and Gender Studies Film and Media Studies Modernity and Modernism Post-Colonial Studies Social and Political Quantitative Studies Text Production: Past and Present
The Modern Languages MRes programme welcomes applicants from a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, but a good Honours degree in a Modern Language or other Humanities subject area with, where appropriate, competence in the relevant foreign language equivalent to degree level standard is required.
