Course summary

Welcome to MA by Research English

The MA by Research in English is designed for students who have a passion to pursue a research project defined by themselves, but with the support of an academic environment and supervisors.

Students have the opportunity to conduct in-depth research into an area of their choice. With the help of dedicated skills sessions and under the guidance of an academic supervisor, students will be expected to write a dissertation of around 25,000 words.

The School offers a vibrant research culture with two research groups (21C Research Group and Nineteenth-Century Research Group) and regular research seminars. Research strengths include 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st Century literature, Gothic literature, women's writing, American fiction, and medieval and early modern literature.

How You Study

Study takes the form of supervised individual research where students will work on one topic of their choice for the duration of the study period.

Written work will be regularly submitted to the supervisor who will provide feedback and agree the next stage of work.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the majority of time is spent in independent study and research. Students will have meetings with their academic supervisor(s), but the frequency of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and stage of programme.

How You Are Assessed

The assessment takes the form of a 25,000 word dissertation.

Career and Personal Development

This programme aims to provide training for a career across the creative industries. Students may choose to move on to doctoral study programmes and pursue careers in academia.
