Course Summary

This unique and intellectually rigorous Masters programme gives you the opportunity to develop the study of literature from a variety of perspectives through a number of flexible pathways.

Your chosen pathway through this programme will ground and further your knowledge in a particular area of literary studies (see below), but you will also have the opportunity to study other areas related to other pathways – bringing different literatures and approaches into exciting, original and productive dialogues with each other.

The pathways you can take are:

  • Pathway in American Literature & Culture
  • Pathway in Comparative Literature & Criticism
  • Pathway in Literature of the Caribbean & its Diasporas
  • Pathway in Critical Theory
  • Pathway in Modern and Contemporary Literature
  • Pathway in Romantic & Victorian Literature & Culture

These enable you to combine theoretical angles with the close reading of a wide range of texts, from different media (literary, filmic, visual), periods, and cultural, geographic and linguistic backgrounds – though all texts will be studied in English, in English translation, or with English subtitles.

Skills

You'll develop transferable skills, including:

  • enhanced communication and discussion skills in written and oral contexts
  • the ability to analyse and evaluate different textual materials
  • the ability to organise information; the ability to assimilate and evaluate competing arguments
