English Literature (Victorian pathway)
This course provides opportunities for the advanced study of the literature and culture of the period 1832 to 1901; it aims to provide both a stand-alone qualification in the advanced study of literature and a foundation for students wishing to proceed to a PhD in the area of Victorian literary studies.
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 Bront�s; 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.
There are a number of scholarships available to both UK/EU and international students.
