University of Aberdeen
English Literary Studies
The programme is primarily intended to provide a basis for undertaking research in English literature including the literature of Scotland and Ireland. Research 'training' involves the acquisition of practical skills and knowledge, and of specialised knowledge and understanding of literary periods and literary issues which will be directly relevant to each candidate's proposed field of research.
2.1 Honours degree in English literature or equivalent. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum 6.0 in reading and writing) or equivalent.
The courses centre on the 4 areas of the department's research: Renaissance literature; Enlightenment, Romantic, and Victorian literature; modern and contemporary literature; Scottish and Irish literature.
Assessment methods vary by individual course, and include essays, reports, presentations, written exercises and written and oral examinations. The MLitt also requires a 15,000-word dissertation, while the diploma consists of coursework alone.
