The English: Science Fiction Studies MA provides you with a range of options in the academic study of science fiction, as genre and cultural mode.

Building on the University’s strong tradition of science fiction scholarship and teaching, and the fact that we host the largest specialist collection of science fiction materials in Europe, this programme will equip you with knowledge required to understand the role that science fiction plays in society.

You will situate your reading in appropriate contexts, but also learn to think about what science fiction reveals about perceptions of technology, apocalyptic fears, the changing face of the future, and the relationship between literature and science.
