MA Literature is our flagship course. Two of your five modules are compulsory: The Novel acts as a good grounding to the study of literature at MA level and as a focal point for all our students on this course, while Research Methods in Literary and Cultural Analysis offers essential training in the skills and methodology necessary to succeed at this, and higher, levels of graduate research.

Beyond that, our course is characterised by a high degree of choice, with room for you to focus on specialist interests, such as US literature or Shakespeare, or to sample from different areas. You graduate with textual and analytical skills that are relevant to a wide range of future careers.

Please note that this course is also available on a part-time basis.

A Masters course is an academically rigorous programme during which you explore your subject in depth, reaching a high level of specialist knowledge. You draw on knowledge and skills from your undergraduate study or your professional life to produce work of a high academic standard, informed by current thinking and debate.
A Masters course lasts for twelve months (full-time), starting in October, and consists of taught modules during your autumn and spring terms, and normally a research-based dissertation or other project-based work submitted in September. Typically your research (dissertation) counts for 80 credits and there are 100 credits of modules, each individual module worth 20 credits. (If you are from the EU, then our Masters courses are regarded as ‘second-cycle’ qualifications under the Bologna Declaration and consist of 90 ECTS credits).
Please note that module information on our course finder provides a guide to course content and may be subject to review on an annual basis.
