MA Writing in the Modern World


Course Description

Study:

Writing in the Modern World is devoted to the critical and creative study of 20th and 21st century literature. Writing is understood as what we read and what we make; exploring the interrelation of the two activities is central to this MA. As a student on Writing the Modern World you will both reflect on and participate in this on-going dynamic of thinking, reading and writing about modern and contemporary literature.

Structure:

At the core of this degree are two innovative modules: Living Modernism and Creative-Critical Writing. Theory in both of these modules is treated as an interactive component of the 20th and 21st century literary tradition. Two further modules are selected from a variety of specialist options, including ones from related MA programmes. The programme concludes with a dissertation, where students work one-to-one with a tutor on a topic of their own choosing.

Teaching:

As well as being taught by prize-winning scholars and authors, you will also encounter the foremost figures in contemporary writing via the UEA Literary Festival. As a postgraduate student in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing you’ll be part of a vibrant mix of MA and PhD students who are engaged in writing the modern world in a variety of ways: from producing critical studies of novels, poetry or plays through to writing their own.

Employability:

Many students have used their course dissertation as a testing ground for further study at PhD-level. You will be prepared for pursuing doctoral research, but also equipped with transferable skills in research, project management and critical thinking that you are needed to pursue a career outside academia.
