This is an innovative and interdisciplinary MA programme, combining taught modules and a dissertation, which allows you to share your year between Canterbury and Paris.
You spend your first term at our Canterbury campus with full access to its excellent academic and recreational facilities, before relocating to our Paris centre for the spring term, studying in the heart of historic Montparnasse.
In Paris, you participate in the Paris-focused modules, taught in English. Then, in the final term, you will complete your MA by writing a 15,000-word dissertation on a research topic defined in collaboration with your academic supervisors.
The School offers a number of distinct MA programmes, and plays a central role in the interdisciplinary MA in Medieval and Early Modern Studies.
The English MA literature programmes aim to increase your knowledge of the key elements that make up the complex nature of English and American literature and culture. The programmes give a wider and deeper understanding of the writers and areas studied, encourage you to probe the theoretical and scholarly issues which you could explore in further research, and offer opportunities to develop your creative writing.
Each MA programme consists of four taught modules and a 12-15,000 word dissertation or equivalent. You must get satisfactory results in your taught modules before going on to spend the final third of your MA course writing a dissertation on a topic of your choice. On the Creative Writing MA the dissertation is replaced with a creative writing project in which a collection of poems or a substantial work of fiction will be produced.
As a basis for work on your dissertation and advanced research, you are also required to take the School and Faculty research methods programmes.
Availability of modules Not all modules listed here necessarily run every year. Please consult the School for details of availability.
You take either Fiction 1 in the first term and Paris: The Residency in the second, or Poetry 1 in the first term and Paris: The Residency in the second. In the first term, you may choose from any of the other creative writing modules on offer and in the second term, you choose from the modules on offer in Paris. While in Paris, you are encouraged to attend readings and talks, and to organise your own writing workshops.
You take a total of four modules, for which you produce approximately 8,000 words each (or an equivalent number of poems or translations). In addition, you write a creative dissertation of about 15,000 words.
A first or second class honours degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent), or substantial creative writing experience. Each applicant is required to submit a sample of his/her creative writing, and this will be the most significant factor in admissions decisions.
