Course summary

MA Science Fiction and Fantasy will introduce you to contemporary work in these genres across a range of media. You’ll benefit from networking and career-building opportunities with professionals in the industry who will give your insight into how materials in these genres are produced and disseminated to their fans.

You will consider science fiction and fantasy as products shaped by interactions between the entertainment industry, reviewers and critics as well as their own fans. By analysing how the boundaries of these genres have been established, policed, challenged and developed, you will learn to apply your own theories to a range of popular works - and produce your own original writing.

Assessment

You will show your progress primarily through written work, including traditional methods such as critical essays and original creative writing, but also through reviews, book proposals and marketing plans, helping you to develop the relevant skills for your future career.

Your formative assessment will be including creating an online reading portfolio that can be shared with other students using our online learning environment.

Careers

Our MA Science Fiction and Fantasy is developed with working professionals in mind. It will help you develop the critical skills and the industry know-how for a career working with literature, film and art in roles such as publisher, agent, writer, teacher or librarian.

Once you graduate, you might also be interested in taking a research degree, such as our MPhils / PhDs in English Literature, Creative Writing or Publishing.
