Summary

Literature in English is written and read all around the world. The MLitt English Literary Studies is an advanced programme which explores the theory and criticism of a range of literary periods and national literatures. This flexible programme offers a choice of modules and training in research skills.

The MLitt in English Literary Studies is primarily intended to provide a basis for undertaking research in English literature, including the literature of Scotland and Ireland. Research 'training' involves the acquisition of practical skills and knowledge and of specialised knowledge and understanding of literary periods and issues that will be directly relevant to each candidate's proposed field of research. You can take this degree as a stand-alone one-year or two-year part-time Masters degree, or as a first step towards an MPhil or PhD (subject to admission to a further degree programme either at Aberdeen or elsewhere). The programme is likely to appeal to you if you wish to create a solid foundation on which to build a PhD research proposal, or if you wish to teach literature, or to study literature at a postgraduate level to further an interest in culture and life-long learning.
