Course summary

Overview

MA English combines the study of literatures, linguistics, critical theory and creative writing. Studying English at postgraduate level will allow you to immerse yourself in literature from 1660 to the present day, while also studying linguistic theory and developing your own writing abilities.

You will develop your skills in analysis, reasoning and communication, creating an excellent foundation for either a communication-based career or further academic study.

Course structure

A typical week for you will include seminars and discussion groups, as well as independent study. Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters course requires a higher level of independent working.

Your progress will be assessed with essays, and some options may also require oral presentations. Throughout the course you'll have one-to-one support from staff.

Career ready

A Masters degree in English is a qualification that employers understand and respect. It is powerful testimony to your intellectual competence.

Your highly developed skills in communication, research and analysis will make you a perfect fit for a wide range of organisations. Many of our graduates progress to careers in teaching, journalism, PR, business and publishing.

With this qualification you also have the option to continue in academia, and study for a PhD.
