Study type Taught


If you live for literature and culture and want to deepen your understanding of the complex and often disturbing forces that shape our world, then our MA will be ideal for you. Study on our MA will lead you to new levels of emotional and intellectual engagement and will lay the foundations for you to produce exciting written work that deserves to be published and read; you will be inspired to think in new, innovative, and challenging ways.

Our teaching team engages intensely with the real-world issues that shape and govern our world in the 2020s – the debates and conflicts about gender, sexuality, race, class, justice, technology and the environment – and they ground their knowledge and learning in rigorous readings of literary and cultural texts. Join us on this MA to develop your own ideas, readings and ways of seeing the world from leading academics and writers.

Designed to explore a wide range of literary and cultural texts, this programme will equip you with the critical and research skills you’ll need to develop innovative approaches to your writing. Studying a literature and culture master’s degree at Salford allows you to experience all the creativity the north-west has to offer – whether that’s visiting unique local archives, getting involved with cultural organisations, or immersing yourself in the world of libraries.

As part of this course, you’ll share and present ideas with your peers, and become part of a lively learning environment. As your course progresses, you’ll also be able to showcase everything you’ve learnt as part of an in-depth research-led dissertation project that allows you to follow your own interests.
