Course Summary

The English master's programmes are designed to serve both as an autonomous degree for students wishing to pursue more advanced studies in English literature, and as a solid foundation for doctoral research. The MSt programme consists of four main components, through which you have the opportunity to pursue interests both within your chosen MSt strand, as well as across period boundaries. The MSt programme is assessed via the submission of four pieces of coursework. Many English taught-course students go onto doctoral research, both at Oxford and at other universities worldwide. Other graduates pursue careers in occupations including teaching, journalism, law, publishing and the civil service.
