University of Bristol

English Literature

The MA in English Literature aims to deepen your passion for literature while developing the rigorous specialist skills essential to postgraduate-level research. With the help and support of a distinguished English department, we aim to provide a stimulating and challenging intellectual experience in a friendly, supportive environment. The programme offers three pathways, which build on the core research strengths of the department: - Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature - Romantic and Victorian Literature - 20th-century and Contemporary Literature. If you wish to focus on a particular period you may follow a single pathway. Alternatively, if you want to broaden your engagement with English literature, you may choose a combination of pathways and optional units. All students are taught the specialist skills required for postgraduate-level research and the practical skills that academic life demands. Everyone is expected to enter fully into the wider academic community of the department and the University.
