Study type Taught


The MA English Literature is a rewarding taught degree which takes you on an exhilarating literary journey using texts from the eighteenth century to the present day.

Drawing on staff research expertise from the Romantic period to contemporary literature we explore a range of literary forms and delve into subjects such as historical and contemporary representations of place, the politics of genre fiction, and the representation of gender and sexuality. The dissertation gives you the flexibility to pursue your own research interests with the support and encouragement of a supervisor. Our wider academic community is dynamic so you will also have the chance to take part in additional activities which can include, but are not limited to, open mics, guest speakers, archive and museum visits, poetry readings and more.

The MA is taught by published researchers and writers. The course aims to support you while you develop and hone your critical writing and research skills, all of which are transferable to a range of industries. You can take our MA for professional development purposes, in order to enhance your career and to increase your employability in the creative arts, education, and heritage sectors. This degree will also help you to specialise in an area of literary study which can pave the way for doctoral study.

One of the great strengths of the programme is its flexibility. MA English Literature can be studied either full or part-time and classes are scheduled in the evenings. Modules can be taken individually, allowing you to control the pace and depth of your postgraduate study. Programme delivery is enhanced by the university's commitment to e-learning .
