This programme combines the internationally recognised research and teaching strengths of the School of English and Languages with provisions across the range of literary periods, from the medieval to the contemporary.
The programme is designed to equip you with a critical understanding of English literary studies and respond to significant questions: How have ideas about literature and literary value changed over time? What effects do innovations in printing and publishing have on writing? To what extent do political and social factors condition and define authorial identities and practices?
The MA in English Literature invites students to reflect on such questions and to consider the relationship between literatures from a variety of historical periods, regions, contexts and theoretical paradigms. The programme will be ideal for both those who intend to pursue doctoral research and those who wish to achieve a broad overview of anglophone literary culture.
