Course summary

Devised by leading experts in the literature, history, cultural heritage and digital humanities of the nineteenth century, this interdisciplinary taught Masters degree enables you to explore a range of classic and less well-known texts and gain advanced skills in academic writing and research. From discussions of Romantic creativity to Victorian entertainments and fin de siècle fears and horrors, you will investigate how contemporary debates and developments around the nineteenth century continue to shape popular culture today. You will participate in field trips and have the opportunity to work with local, national and international cultural heritage organisations to explore the lasting legacies of the period. Whether you are a graduate with an interest in nineteenth-century literature and culture, a current or aspiring educational or cultural heritage professional, or seeking to develop expert knowledge in preparation for a PhD, this programme offers an area of historical specialism and showcases how to apply a broad range of transferable skills to educational and cultural heritage settings and other employment environments.

What will I study?

The programme introduces you to the key research skills and concepts required for nineteenth century studies. These range from developing referencing, writing and editing skills at a postgraduate standard to working with physical and digital archives and presenting the results of your research in an appropriate manner.

Exploring a range of different periods and approaches to the literature and history of the nineteenth century, the programme examines theoretical perspectives on the Romantic period, engages you in close analysis of Victorian literature, and reveals digital techniques for uncovering forgotten fragments of late-Victorian popular culture and entertainment.

There is also the opportunity to undertake a work-based project. This will enable you to enhance your employability by undertaking a work placement with one of our partner organisations, or by working independently, and encourage you to think about how to apply your research knowledge to careers in academia and beyond.

The culmination of the programme will be the production of your own substantial independent research project in a focused area of study, supported by the guidance of leading experts in the field.

Career Prospects

What are my career prospects?

The programme has been designed to equip you with the in-depth knowledge, skills and expertise required to pursue further study at PhD level.

The programme also encourages you to reflect on using your skills and expertise in a range of professional settings, from primary, secondary and further education to working in, or with, cultural heritage organisations such as art galleries, museums and archives.
