Course summary

Our expert tutors will introduce you to the very latest academic debates in literary studies, and encourage you to examine the role of literature in the wider world.

By tailoring the course to your own research needs and interests you can pursue any literary genre you can imagine, whether it's Arthurian literature or American crime fiction, Scottish Gothic or Irish drama.

You can choose from a wide range of modules in Scottish and Irish literature, Medieval and Renaissance literature, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature, and modern and contemporary literature.

Our 'Special Author' optional module allows you to explore in depth the works of your chosen author whether it's Shakespeare or Zadie Smith.

We provide you with training in literary and cultural research as a firm basis for proceeding to doctoral study.

We have recognised strengths in book history and publishing, authorship studies, and visual culture. We explore the creative relationships between literature and film, poetry and theatre, word and image, and more.

We have a regular postgraduate forum, host visiting speakers, and we invite you to participate in an annual Humanities Postgraduate Conference. You will also benefit from a range of generic skills classes throughout the course.

Careers:

This course provides you with training in literary and cultural research as a firm basis for proceeding to doctoral study. As well as being a research preparation degree, the course also caters directly for those who wish to take their first degree to a higher level of advanced study, for either career development or merely general interest.

Having developed your written presentation skills, your ability to work independently, and having planned and conducted independent research and study, you will also be prepared to enter any non-academic career field.
