Course summary

The MLitt in Modern Languages brings together the exceptionally broad fields of research interest in the School of Modern Languages, ranging from the medieval period to the present day and engaging with cultures spanning the world. This programme allows you to specialise in a specific language pathway and provides cohort-wide taught modules in relevant research methodologies and skills.

German Studies: develop your academic interests in German language societies and cultures from the middle Ages to the present. Students work with academics that have expertise in a particularly wide range of research specialisms in German studies (medieval literature, the 19th century, realism, travel writing, historiography, queer studies, cultural memory, contemporary literature, film and visual culture).

Highlights

  • Deepen and expand your interests in at least one language specialism through dedicated modules and individualised guided reading programmes.
  • Fifty full-time academic staff teaching in seven languages provide unusually wide discipline-specific and cross-disciplinary research, teaching, and supervision expertise.
  • Investigate cutting-edge Modern Languages research through involvement in the work of the School's research centres, interdisciplinary research groups and postgraduate student seminars.
  • A diverse and international study body from across Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, provides a global outlook.

Careers

Modern Languages postgraduates go on to careers in the academic field or in other areas, for example as cultural advisors, translators, or in the public or civil service.
