The discipline of Language, Literature and Cultural Studies is concerned with the relation and interaction between Language and Literature in a certain Cultural environment.
Language studies or linguistics is a science that tackles language from the perspective of structure, form, meaning and context, while literature is the art of the written composition, divided in poetry, prose and theatre. The complex discipline of Language, Literature and Cultural Studies aims at enabling the student to build a deep understanding of a culture based on the language and literature of that culture. Language and literature are both a very powerful expression tools and they offer insight into the building elements of a culture, the particular characteristics of a society or social group in terms of spirituality, intellect, emotion and physical environment. These two forms of expression are some of the strongest transmission channels of the cultural heritage of a society and researching those helps understand the drivers and mechanisms of the culture in question.
This fascinating discipline helps to understand and value the cultural diversity of the human society that is becoming more and more globalized and detached to specific culture. Being aware of the different cultural backgrounds of the members of our cross-cultural environment helps not only preserve the valuable artefacts and manifestations of that culture, but also to better communicate and cooperate in our day to day activity.

The English and American Literature MA allows you to choose from the full range of our MA literature modules. The list of what’s on offer is regularly added to by academics keen to explore new areas of thinking with students, and to draw students in to our established areas of research strength, such as postcolonial studies, eighteenth-century studies, modern poetry and fiction, or Victorian studies. Our modules draw on many different critical approaches and they focus on a wide range of historical periods, ideas, and places from modern India to post-war New York to literary London in the eighteenth century. Some modules bring things alive with practical sessions on book history in Canterbury Cathedral Library, or a visit to the Dickens Museum. Variety and intellectual diversity are always possible – you can pursue topics you enjoyed as an undergraduate and study some less familiar ones as well. Or if you prefer, you can choose pathways within the programme, concentrating in a particular area.
