Pioneering research shapes our teaching. You will benefit from the extensive knowledge and expertise of our academic team as you study novels, poetry and plays by writers ranging from Keats to Beckett, Heaney to Rankine. Exploration of critical theory and current literary debates will introduce you to how issues such as gender, ecology and psychoanalysis inform the way we read literary texts.

Throughout the course you will be able to hone your research and critical abilities, as well as polish key transferable practical skills.

The MA in English Literature is the perfect route towards further study and research at PhD level, as well as providing a bridge to new and enhanced career opportunities. Graduates have been successful in securing a variety of positions within teaching, publishing, freelance journalism and creative writing, librarianship, the media, public relations and advertising.
