This unique interdisciplinary programme provides the opportunity for intensive historical, literary or art-historical study. It challenges you to engage with the evidence and methods of different disciplines in order to equip you with the wide range of research techniques crucial for studying the period.
The MA provides a thorough grounding in the skills required for advanced study in the medieval and early modern periods, as well as a core course in disciplinary methods and an exciting and varied range of optional modules. In addition, you produce a final dissertation of 12-15,000 words, for which you receive one-to-one supervision.
* Duration: One year full-time, two years part-time.
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.
