Course Summary

In the DPhil in Medieval and Modern Languages programme, students complete a major piece of original research. Supervision is offered in most fields, covering not only modern and contemporary literature, film and cultural history in each language, but medieval and early modern literature and culture as well.

The DPhil programme enables you to acquire the research skills necessary to complete a substantial piece of original research. You will work under the guidance of a supervisor who is a specialist in their subject. In cases where two areas of expertise are essential, joint supervision will be arranged.

The faculty groups a large number of research-active staff with an exceptionally wide range of interests. The faculty is therefore able to offer supervision in most fields, covering not only modern and contemporary literature, film and cultural history in each language, but medieval and early modern literature and cultural history as well. Areas of particular strength include:

  • Enlightenment studies
  • women’s writing and gender studies
  • life writing
  • Walter Benjamin and Modernism
  • Dante studies
  • the Spanish Golden Age
  • Latin American (including Brazilian) studies
  • Russian cultural studies.

Entry requirements

As a minimum, applicants should hold or be predicted to achieve the equivalent of the following UK qualifications: a master's degree with a very good result or a distinction; and a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours. The qualifications above should be achieved in the relevant modern language for their proposed study, or a similar course of academic study with substantial course components in the area of the modern language to be studied. Degree-level competence in at least one modern language is a requirement for admission. Entrance is very competitive and most successful applicants have a high first-class degree or the equivalent. For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.75 out of 4.0.
