The MA in Modern Literature combines an intensive introduction to twentieth century and contemporary literature with detailed examination of individual writers, texts and issues in literary studies. Students can expect to develop a broad knowledge of modern literature and critical theory, a command of methodologies for understanding and analysing texts and ideas, and the skills of independent scholarly enquiry, information retrieval and presentation. The course is suited equally to those preparing for MPhil and PhD work and those who wish to pursue careers in other areas.

Students have the opportunity to graduate with an MA in Modern Literature and Creative Writing. To do this, you will take one or both of the creative Option Modules (Writing Fiction, and Poetry Writing and Contemporary Poetry) and then the Creative Dissertation (see below for details of all three of these modules). This innovation is particularly intended for students who may have little experience in Creative Writing but are keen to try it; having tried it in one or both of the creative Option Modules, you will then be able in your dissertation either to take it further in an extended creative piece of work or to return to academic scholarship and criticism.
