A master’s degree is a post-graduate degree that focuses on expanding students' understanding of all that they learned during their undergraduate years. A master’s program typically takes two years, though that varies from person to person and field to field.

What is a Master in Postcolonial Literature? This program covers both traditional and new fields of American and European literature. During their course of study, students may read more of, analyze and interpret works by great writers such as Shakespeare and Dickens, Ayn Rand and Toni Morrison. Courses may focus on the analysis and interpretation of the works themselves, or they may concentrate more on creative writing and recent developments in literary theory. Pupils may be encouraged to explore how great literary works reflect on the colonial experience as well as how they may impact global phenomena such as diaspora, nationhood and migration.

Graduates of literary studies tend to possess many desirable traits, including the ability to deeply analyze content and come to informed conclusions, strong communication skills (both written and verbal) and a superb attention to detail. Pupils also tend to possess a greater understanding of and compassion for cultures that are not their own. Each of these qualities can prove to be beneficial in both professional and personal endeavors.

A master’s degree varies greatly in price and hinges on many factors. Location, duration and mode of education (online or offline) all affect the final cost of a program.

People who possess a degree in postcolonial literature usually find that they are qualified for many exciting positions and that they are in high demand in a variety of fields. Graduates may become teachers, professors, editors, writers, marketing specialists, grant writers, proposal writers, advertising copywriters and researchers. Many tend to find career fulfillment with publishing companies, advertising agencies, marketing firms, newspapers and website development firms.

The SOAS Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS) will welcome applications from MPhil/PhD students wishing to undertake research in the disciplines of Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies and Postcolonial Studies. The Centre has developed its own MPhil training programme which will enable research students to be registered in the Centre rather than in specific regional Departments or those of other disciplines. The Centre places its emphasis on the acquisition of critical theoretical skills and in-depth regional, linguistic and cultural knowledge with specific reference to Asia, Africa and the Middle East, but also to literature written in European languages. Prospective research students will have the unique opportunity to work on an exceptionally wide range of topics, theoretical and critical, supervised according to the expertise of a wide range of academic staff across the Faculty and SOAS. -
