University of Cumbria: Literature Romanticism and the English Lake District
|Institution||University of Cumbria View institution profile|
|Department||Institute of the Arts|
The landscape of the English Lake District has been a source of inspiration to generations of poets and writers. This taught MA offers a unique opportunity to study a rich body of literary and non-literary texts within the geographical landscape which inspired them, at the University of Cumbria's Ambleside campus in the heart of the Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO world heritage site.
Here you will explore critical ideas about the relationship between the creative imagination and place, and have the opportunity to visit some of the specific locations which have inspired and which continue to inspire writers. The course also offers opportunities to engage with partner organisations such as Brantwood and the Wordsworth Trust, and to work with related and unique manuscript resources.
The course can enhance prospects in a range of careers that demand high-level analytical and interpretative skills as well as advanced skills in written and oral communication. Specific career pathways might include work in publishing or the creative and cultural heritage industries; the course can also support students wishing to go on to study at MPhil/PhD level.
