Study type Taught


The aim of this Masters course is to give you an education in aspects of English studies which draw on the interdisciplinary possibilities of English studies, focusing mainly on literature but also on other cultural practices and language.

The MLitt in Interdisciplinary English Studies focuses on the representation, imaginary transformation and symbolisation of culture, as mediated through language and literature. It does this by drawing on the interdisciplinary strengths of the school, and the English Studies section within the school. The class will prepare you to think about the ways in which all aspects of a culture depend on narrative, fiction and language. You'll be able to apply this either to working in education, business, government or a third sector organisation. The course also provides a preparation for undertaking a PhD, which generally requires a Masters qualification as an entry requirement.
