Our flexible MA English Literature course gives you the chance to explore the subjects you love with the guidance of leading researchers.

You can choose to focus your studies in a particular specialism through our pathways in American Studies, Film Studies, Gothic Studies and Literary Linguistics among others, or choose from any of the modules to create the degree that best suits your interests.

The transferable skills you will develop through this MA programme will give you a wide variety of career options when you graduate. Some of our modules have been designed specifically to provide opportunities for reflecting on the role of English in the public sphere and to enable you to develop different kinds of skills and experience.

Modules have been grouped into pathways to allow you to see how different modules might help you build up a portfolio that helps prepare you for a dissertation in a particular area. However, you may also choose modules across any of the pathways or MA programmes within the School of English.
