The MA English Literature is a rewarding taught degree offering an exhilarating analysis of English Literature 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 genre, space, history, textuality, gender and sexuality and the effect of these on constructions of identity.
The MA is taught by published researchers and writers. The course is aimed to support you while you develop and hone your critical writing and research skills, particularly in relation to literature that addresses genre, gender and sexuality, history, place and space. You can take our MA for professional development purposes, in order to enhance your career and to increase your employability in the arts and heritage sectors. The MA will also help you specialise in the areas of contemporary and historical literature in relation to pave the way for doctoral study.
We have expertise across a number of fields and our academic community is vibrant and dynamic with strong industry links.
One of the great strengths of the programme is its flexibility. MA English Literature can be studied either full or part-time. Modules can be taken individually, allowing you to control the pace and depth of your postgraduate study. Programme delivery is enhanced by the university's commitment to e-learning.
