Course Content

You will be required to take two core skills modules chosen from two of the three subject areas: Modern Literature; Modern English Language; Medieval Language and Literature.

You will also take a further generic `Research Management´ module, designed to give you the necessary skills to undertake a major piece of independent research.

In addition, you will select a further 15 credits from the list of modules in each of your chosen subject areas. The remaining 60 credits may be taken from any area of the course programme.

Modules currently offered on this course include:

o Victorian Literature
o Contemporary Fiction
o Old Norse
o Modernism
o Corpus Analysis
o Language, Culture and Society
o Creative Reading

Please note that all module details are subject to change.

In consultation with the course convenor, you may choose to write your dissertation on a new topic or you may extend your research into a topic already addressed in assessed work, with the proviso that you must not substantially repeat work that has already been assessed.

You will be assigned a tutor to supervise your dissertation, which will normally be written up during the summer months, from June to September.
Full details about the content of the MA in English Studies is available on the School of English Studies website. Course Structure
This course can be taken over 1 year, full-time (September to September) or part-time over 2 to 3 years.

The MA consists of taught modules totalling 120 credits (which are taken during the autumn and spring semesters) and a 60-credit dissertation module (undertaken over the summer period).

Full-time students normally take 60 credits of taught modules in each semester; part-time students normally take 30 credits.

All taught modules are assessed by written work of between 3,000 words (for a 15 credit module) and 6,000 words (for a 30 credit module), which is set towards the end of the semester in which the module is taught.

The dissertation module is assessed by written work of 12,000-15,000 words.
