MA English is a rewarding taught degree offering an exhilarating analysis of English using texts from the 'long nineteenth century' to the present day.
The degree focuses on historic and contemporary textual representations of place, theorising cultural representations and practices of location, space, history and textuality, and the effect of these on constructions of identity. Where possible, the modules encourage you to explore interdisciplinary boundaries and texts.
Employability and Careers
MA English encourages you to develop the valuable skills of autonomy, effective collaboration, self-direction, organisation, initiative and adaptability that are highly regarded in the workplace. These transferable skills are crucial to career development and enhancement, and form the basis for further study.

Applicants should usually have a first or upper second-class honours degree, in a relevant subject. Students that meet the criteria may be invited for interview.
