English Literature (Victorian pathway)
A 2.1 Honours degree or its equivalent in English or in a closely related subject; applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 with no grade below 6.0.
Modules are usually research-led and so bear some correspondence to the particular areas of interest of course leaders; the programme comprises a team-taught core module: Reading Victorian literature (history, text and context); students then choose 3 modules from a selection, which currently include: The Brontës; the reading revolution in the Victorian period; imperial masculinities; Henry James' the Wings of the Dove; apprentices to life (Bildungsroman in 19th-century fiction). In addition, students take the research methods module and undertake a dissertation.
Assessment for the majority of MA modules is by 4000-word essay submitted at the end of the semester in which it is taught. The research project/dissertation is 12000 to 15000 words. For most seminars you will also be required to submit an unassessed essay and give seminar presentations.
