Course summary

This pathway of the MA in Literary Studies aims to enhance your knowledge and understanding of the literature of nineteenth-century Britain and its relationship to a wide variety of cultural, intellectual, geographic and historical contexts.

Why study the MA Literary Studies: Romantic and Victorian Literature pathway at Goldsmiths?

  • You will compare key literary texts from the Romantic and Victorian periods, looking at how they relate. These are exciting periods of literature, full of radicalism and revolutionary change. Both periods saw the development of new forms of literature and the adaptation of established genres.
  • We will help you understand the impact of a wide range of cultural, intellectual, geographic and historical contexts on 19th-century literary culture. You’ll be looking at topics as diverse as scientific discoveries, philosophy and religion and how they impacted writers at the time.
  • We won't just look at texts. We'll be drawing on film and art to help our studies.
  • The flexible structure of the MA offers you the opportunity to pursue your wider interests by studying three options from the large provision of the department.
  • You will be able to further develop your interest in Romantic and Victorian literature and culture through a 15,000-word dissertation to be submitted at the end of your programme of study.
