Course summary

This is a two-year, part-time MSt degree in interdisciplinary studies in literature and arts. The course takes place over four five-day residences and two online modules. You will select two options from each of three periods of English history. Assessment is based on four essays and a dissertation. This literature and arts course brings together the creative, intellectual, and manufactured output of people in the past. It has a twofold aim: to explore the past through the lens of human creativity, and to inform our understanding of that creativity by studying the context within which it emerged. It is therefore an interdisciplinary programme which encompasses literature, art and architectural history, history, political thought and theology. Assessment is through four 4,000- to 5,000- word assignments, each assignment following a residential session, and an 11,000-word dissertation. The four assignments contribute up to 40% of the final mark and the dissertation contributes up to 60%. Graduates of the programme have progressed to doctorates at the University of Oxford and also at Cambridge, London, Warwick and Roehampton. This year four MLA graduates have been offered places on the new course, the DPhil in Literature and Arts, established by the department to provide a route to part-time doctoral study for graduates of interdisciplinary humanities masters' courses.
