The MLitt Global Languages, Literatures and Cultures will deepen your literary and cultural knowledge while fostering intercultural competence and transferable skills for life in an increasingly globalised world.

The School of Modern Languages is distinguished by the breadth of its academic activity which spans language, literary, and cultural studies across seven distinct language areas as well as a range of cultural-historical epochs from the middle ages to the present day. This breadth is reflected in the literary and cultural topics you will study on the degree.

  • Deepen your knowledge in your chosen language area(s) by exploration through new perspectives and methodologies.

  • Fifty full-time academic staff teaching in seven languages provide a global outlook, as well as a broad range of disciplinary knowledge, teaching, and supervision expertise.

  • Engage with cutting-edge research through involvement in the work of the School's research centres and interdisciplinary research groups.

  • Explore cross-disciplinary studies via an option module in the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Studies as part of your degree.
