Modernities (Literature, Theory and Culture)

This programme investigates the key texts and concepts that shape our understanding of literature and culture from 1900 to the present. The texts studied are related to developments in critical theory and other cultural practices such as film, theatre and the visual arts.

Entry requirements

We normally expect applicants to have obtained a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in English Literature or a relevant subject. We also require a sample of written work (up to around 3,000 words), a short statement of around 500 words outlining the applicant's interest in the programme, and at least 1 academic reference.

Course modules

The programme involves taught sessions plus a period of research and writing over the summer. Students study a core and optional course, and undertake supervised study of a specialised topic of their choice, researching and writing a 15,000 word dissertation. Students can choose optional courses from the range of subjects in modern literature, theory and culture; or, with the convenor's permission, students may select from any MLitt course offered in the College of Arts.
