Summary

With an overall focus on literature, politics and social change, our MA English Literature will equip you to engage with the interface between literature and society. By reading and contextualising a wide range of texts within their critical, cultural and historical contexts, you will be encouraged to evaluate the ideas of others and develop your own critical perspectives and areas of specialised knowledge.

You will develop skills and knowledge through a range of teaching and learning methods and by producing essays, presentations, annotated bibliographies, review essays, dissertation proposals, and a major research project in the form of a dissertation. The skills you learn will provide new directions for future employment and form the basis for further study.

The course focuses on three periods of literary history: the Renaissance, the ‘long’ nineteenth century and the 20th/21st century. Each of the three period-based modules is structured around ideas of politics and social change. The fourth module is a research methods module, which will equip you with the skills needed to complete your dissertations.

You will study in a lively and intellectual department with a long tradition of teaching excellence and an international reputation for research.
