Literature

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.

The subject of English is one of the most wide-ranging subjects of study offered at university. Although the focus is on literature, the nature of English literature exposes students to thinking in other realms of history, politics, philosophy and more. This makes the UK, with its world-renown education system, one of the best places in the world to study such a multi-disciplinary subject. Another thrill for English literature students, specific to the UK, is the knowledge that many of the authors studied in class were not only from the UK, but often still have remnants around the country for students to visit, such as the houses of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy, Wordsworth and so many more. At the undergraduate level, students can expect an overview of English literature, ranging from Medieval to twenty-first century. Students will have the opportunity to choose optional modules (classes) alongside the required core modules, which will enable them to focus more on certain areas of interest, such as Victorian literature, creative writing, American literature, Gothic literature, children’s literature, Shakespeare, and many more. In England and Wales the degree will consist of three years of study; in Scotland the degree is four years. In the former, students can expect to take a heaver load of core classes the first year, gradually adding more optional modules as the years progress and they learn their own areas of greatest interest. Students will usually write a dissertation in the third year, though some universities have... [-]
