Course summary

MA English & Literary Media is a contemporary, modern English degree that emphasises the way that media and digital technology influence how we understand and engage with literature, literary texts and narrative. As a graduate of this course, you’ll be well equipped with the knowledge to enter a range of employment areas such as publishing, digital marketing, features, copywriting, brand management and book production.

This unique course de-privileges the idea of the printed text and considers it alongside the kinds of narrative that exist in other media, exploring how developments in media and technology offer interactive forms of storytelling for authors and communication practitioners.

Learn to critically evaluate a variety of texts drawn from film, television, the internet, literature and popular culture, and to relate those texts to the wider fields of which they are a part
Consider the ways in which both contemporary and historical literary texts have been adapted for different mediums and how paratext and extra-textual materials contribute to audience expectations and experiences
Explore definitions of free speech, freedom of expression, censorship and public interest in the context of public cultural controversies
Develop the skills to think rigorously, critically, analytically and imaginatively, applying knowledge to practical situations
Learn from leading national and international scholars in the fields of modern and contemporary literature, media studies, cultural studies and new media writing.

Careers

This course enables students to combine the skills of literary analysis developed during an undergraduate degree with a series of new theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of English in a range of different media.
