What will I learn?

COURSE OVERVIEW

The MA in English Literature allows you to roam a stimulating field of English studies and draw on the individual research expertise of our experienced staff.

You shape your own pathway through course, selecting compelling modules from the MA in English and a combination from other specialist MAs such as the MA in Welsh Writing in English and the MA in Gender and Culture.

This could see you combine gender and humour in medieval and early modern Europe with a module on writing radio drama.

A 60-credit dissertation project in the second part of the course will investigate a topic of your choosing.

ENGLISH LITERATURE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

You will develop excellent oral and creative writing skills, and learn to present your ideas in a range of formats.

Graduates from this course enter a range of creative industries including publishing, broadcasting, marketing and advertising. They also undertake research degrees and pursue a career in academia.

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
