Course Summary

The MSt in Modern Languages is designed to allow those who have a high level of attainment in a foreign language, and have studied literature to a degree level, to undertake more advanced work. The MSt in Modern Languages is suitable both for candidates wishing to proceed to a research degree and for those who wish to spend only one year at Oxford. The MSt in Modern Languages allows you to undertake advanced work in one for two literatures, working in Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, or Modern Literary Studies. This degree is also suitable if you do not wish to proceed to a research degree, as it enables you to build upon your undergraduate studies and acquire some knowledge of literary theory. Many MSt students proceed to doctoral degrees at Oxford or at other universities. Other graduate destinations include teaching, journalism, law, publishing and the civil service.

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.
