Course Summary

This course offers students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of classical and modern Arabic and Persian literatures and cultures, including music and film, as a prelude to professional work in the arts and culture of the area or as a sound basis for progression to PhD study. The programme is aimed at those who have studied Persian or Arabic literature, and are interested in other languages’ literatures and comparative literature, postcolonial studies, translation studies, gender studies and Middle Eastern history and culture. Students receive training in traditional and new research techniques and have the opportunity to broaden their language portfolios. Modern Language postgraduates go on to careers in the academic field or in other areas, for example as cultural advisors, translators, or in the public or civil service. If students choose not to complete the dissertation requirement for the MLitt, there are exit awards available that allow suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and receive a PGDip instead of a MLitt.
