English Literature

The Buckingham MA does not aim to offer systematic instruction in English Literature, nor does it require written examinations on broad areas of the subject. Instead, the emphasis is on independent research. During the programme, students complete, under supervision, a research dissertation on a suitable subject in English literature from 1550 to the present day. The English Department has particular expertise in 19th- and 20th-century literature, but proposals for research in other areas will be considered.

Entry requirements

1st or 2nd class Hounours degree; applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 or above in each component).

Assessment methods

Assessment is by means of written dissertation.

Sponsorship information

Self-funded.
