Course summary

Course description

Our MA Modern Languages and Cultures master's course prepares students for undertaking further research in constituent disciplines, but it is also aimed at those who wish to broaden and deepen their critical engagement with the wide array of languages and cultures you can study as part of our programme.

The structure of the MA is flexible, which means that you can choose to combine your interests in different languages or cultures, or you can choose to focus more exclusively on one particular area.

Modern Languages at The University of Manchester provide a thriving environment, with its vibrant research culture, University Language Centre facilities, its close links to a wide range of cultural partners across the city and its access to the world-class John Rylands research library.

While this MA offers a range of exciting units that are chronologically or geographically specific, all course units are informed by recent theoretical and historical developments that allow you to think about categories like 'language' and 'culture' in nuanced and fresh ways.

Teaching and learning

You will learn through a variety of teaching methods depending on the units you take, including seminars, lectures and e-learning.

Coursework and assessment

You will be assessed via a range of methods depending on the units you take, including written assignments, exams and oral presentations.

Career opportunities

Our alumni have gone on to pursue successful careers in the arts and cultural sectors, and beyond; both at home and overseas.

Many have also completed postgraduate research degrees and pursued careers within academia.

The MA provides a thorough training in the expertise needed for further postgraduate research.

These skills in research design and planning are transferable to jobs across a wide range of sectors, as well as being a vital first step to PhD.
