English Literature

Internationally recognised scholars in English Literature teach this intensive research-focused Masters degree. You'll work with cutting-edge research-active staff to push forward the latest developments in literary criticism. The English division in the Department of Humanities has a number of exciting and interdisciplinary research groups, with particular strengths in the Early Modern period, the Long Eighteenth Century, Modernism, Gender, and Popular Culture. You'll have the opportunity to develop your own scholarly interests by researching and writing a 20,000 word dissertation. Recent MRes projects have encompassed a range of subjects including a feminist critique of the Tomb Raider video game franchise, the female authorship of eighteenth-century medical tracts, and an examination of loss in the works of Joseph Conrad. Whether taken for the love of literature, or for personal or professional development, the MRes will enhance skills such as communication, self-management and project planning.
