Crime and Gothic Fiction

The MA Crime and Gothic Fictions will introduce you to the advanced study of two popular genres that have entertained and informed culture from the nineteenth century to the present day. The programme is deliberately international and interdisciplinary. You'll study an imaginative choice of texts from Britain, Europe and the Americas, as well as investigating cutting-edge research and relevant theory. The MA is particularly suited to individuals who are interested in developing their critical and research skills in preparation for further study. It can also be pursued as an end in itself, if you're interested in investigating crime writing and gothic at taught postgraduate level.

Course modules
