This innovative and flexible programme gives students the opportunity to specialise simultaneously in several areas of English Studies: Drama and Creative Writing, Literature 1500 to the Present, English Language & Applied Linguistics, and Medieval Literature and Language.
Students take core skills modules in at least two of these areas of study, and then choose from a wide range of elective modules offered by the School.
This MA will particularly suit you if you wish to broaden the range of your experiences as an undergraduate without losing the focus and depth which characterises postgraduate study. Students who are keen to pursue a career teaching English in higher education, will also find this course particularly useful, as it provides an ideal introduction to the main subject-areas encompassed within English Studies.
We have a first-rate, international reputation for outstanding teaching and research, as demonstrated by our School's current UK and world rankings. The School of English was ranked 7th for English in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 and 9th in the UK for 'research power' (REF 2014).
