Course summary

Our MRes in Modern Languages offers an excellent opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge and research experience in your chosen field of Modern Languages and Area Studies.

Course overview

The course will provide graduate students with the opportunity to develop an independent, substantial piece of scholarly research into a field of Modern Languages and Language Area Studies. Students will be informed by, and to contribute to, broader academic debates about the methods, approaches and practices that underpin the discipline of Modern Languages and Language Area Studies.

Why study this course with us?

The MRes in Modern Languages comprises two key elements: a double core module focusing on research methodology (40 credits) and an extended dissertation (140 credits). The Research Dissertation module is divided into three stages, during which you will work closely with your dissertation supervisor exploring, firstly, the existing literature on your topic; secondly, planning your research project; and finally, writing up your dissertation.

You will choose the topic of your dissertation in consultation with the Programme Leader and it will reflect your own research interests and the Department's research specialisms.

The Department offers supervision in a range of Modern Languages and Area Studies topics. We have particular strengths in postcolonial, political and cultural studies in the francophone, Hispanic and Chinese-speaking worlds, as well as visual cultures and literary specialisms in peninsular Spain, France and mainland China.
