University of Hull
Literature is a dynamic force for change. Hull English postgraduates gain insight into society, culture and politics by developing an understanding of the power of language. And both the MA and the MRes programmes provide students with a thorough grounding in research methods and practices. We offer dedicated routes for study and supervision in both Literary Studies and Creative Writing. There are also designated pathways allowing students to focus their studies on Medieval and Renaissance Literature and Culture, Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture, and Modern and Contemporary Literature and Culture. Creative Writing modules allow students to focus their interests on both fiction and non-fiction prose forms, and/or poetry. Students can opt to take a combination of Literary Studies and Creative Writing modules if suitably qualified. Students will be taught and supervised by experts specialising in the wide-ranging chronological pathways, significant single authors (from Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Andrew Marvell through to Thomas Hardy, D. H. Lawrence and beyond), and various creative forms, both prose and verse. Students will experience a variety of literary, theoretical and creative approaches, including some which will be attuned specifically to the rich cultural and literary life of Hull and East Yorkshire.
A 2.1 Honours degree or above, a high 2.2 honours degree with satisfactory interview performance/sample of writing; competence in English is required for international students. For example: IELTS with 6.0 overall with 5.5 in each skill; previous study in English is accepted; candidates that do not meet the language requirements may take an English course at the University of Hull prior to entering the programme.
All MA and MRes students undertake a core training module on Research, Creativity and Engagement in the first semester. This culminates in a one-day postgraduate conference, a process through which students will be guided and supported by the module tutors and convenor. Students will also take three optional modules in their chosen subjects, which will all include elements of research/ creative training. MA students, there is a final dissertation/creative portfolio worth 60 credits, and taught modules are worth 120 credits in total (30 credits each module). MRes students, the final dissertation/portfolio is worth 120 credits, and the taught modules are worth 60 credits (2 x 30-credit modules).
Teaching methods will include 3 hour seminars, creative writing workshops, student presentations and small group exercises.
