MA in English Open University

UK

Course info

Summary

From Genesis to JM Coetzee, our MA in English offers you a rich and exciting experience of higher level literary study. You'll broaden your knowledge and appreciation of different genres, periods, techniques and writers, and of the ways in which they have been transmitted and read. You'll also develop your independent skills in literary research that will culminate in a dissertation on a topic and texts of your choice. This course can help you pursue or develop a career in the media, culture and knowledge industries, and other professions that require understanding of literature and culture, and skills in the creative use of textual analysis.

Key features of the course

  • Explores a wide range of literary texts from ancient times to the present
  • Equips you with key research methods in literary study
  • Provides ideal preparation for doctoral level research and a wide range of careers.

Career relevance

This degree is relevant to careers that directly call on knowledge of English literature and culture. It may also be relevant for careers that demand skills in the creative use and analysis of texts of various sorts, critical thinking and organisation, and understanding of culture in a broad sense. It is also useful (particularly alongside relevant skills and experience) if you aim to work in the media, culture or knowledge industries – or are employed already in these areas and need further qualifications to progress. A masters degree can be useful for professional development in teaching, and if you want to pursue an academic career it provides good preparation for the higher level research that is prerequisite (such as a PhD).

Entry requirement for international students

You must hold a UK honours degree (or equivalent), preferably in English or a closely related subject, and preferably with at least a 2:1 or higher degree classification. As the MA in English assumes you will have completed an undergraduate degree in the subject, you will need some knowledge of undergraduate English literary studies to successfully complete this qualification. Students need an IELTS standard of at least 5.5 (although some qualifications will vary).

* Please check with your chosen school for the exact entry requirements for your programme.
