Study type Research

Summary

A Masters by Research (MScR) programme is ideal if you have a clear idea of the independent research you wish to undertake at masters level. This programme enables you to focus entirely on a research project of your own devising, for which you’ll receive training in research skills and methods and write a 30,000 word dissertation under expert supervision.

Our interdisciplinary environment brings together specialists in all periods and genres of literature and literary analysis. Given the breadth and depth of our expertise, we are able to support students wishing to develop research projects in any field of Anglophone literary studies.

We have particular strengths in each of the main periods of English and Scottish Literature – medieval, renaissance/early modern, enlightenment, romantic, Victorian, modernist, post-war, contemporary and 21st century. We also have concentrations of expertise in American studies, in literary and critical theory, the history of the book, gender and sexuality, and in global Anglophone literatures (including postcolonial studies).

Emergent research themes in the department include the digital humanities, the economic humanities, the environmental humanities and literature and medicine.
