University of Dundee
This programme provides an understanding of the genre of science fiction and its relationship to different genres, national cultures, and media. Students extend strategies for the analysis and interpretation of science fiction texts as well as familiarity with their historical and stylistic development. Students are encouraged to articulate independent critical responses to science fiction across a range of periods and media. The programme is inherently interdisciplinary in its approach, and will foster creativity and ingenuity in developing critical approaches to the work.
Students should normally have a good (2.1) degree in English or a relevant subject area. IELTS of 7.0 overall, with no component less than 7.0 (or equivalent), if the 1st language is not English.
Core modules: science fiction; issues and approaches; new wave and contemporary science fiction. Optional modules: science fiction film; science fiction comics; the scientific romance; difference in science fiction.
The assessment methods used in this course include weekly journals, presentations, research essays, and dissertations. Some of the option modules include assessment of creative work accompanied by reflective essays.
