If anyone has ever told you that you’re a bookworm or if you enjoy classic and modern literary works, then a Master in Literature is the degree for you. As fascinating as creative writing may be, there is no reason to think that studying Literature as a scholar is any less interesting. Poetry, drama, novels and short stories – each of these major forms have their own unique world, a structure that is one of a kind, a story and characters that are not likely for anyone to come across in real life.
A Master in Literature offers a vast variety of programs, such as creative writing, children’s literature, or a program in a certain national literature. Some of the Master in Literature programs may also involve a thorough training in modern philosophy, semiotics, various linguistic and literary theories, such as narratology or the theory of aesthetic reader’s response, which studies the mechanisms of perception.
