English Language and Literature

This course explores the interconnections between language and literature. It provides an understanding of the linguistic features of English from a wide range of perspectives (theoretical and applied, synchronic and diachronic), as well as exploring a wide array of texts in connection with the social, historical and political circumstances from which they emerge. Furthermore, the MA equips students with the intellectual perspectives and the scholarly skills in preparation of independent research. The MA is suitable for students who have taken English language and/or literature modules at undergraduate level, and others who have taken allied disciplines such as TESOL. It is of particular interest to those wishing to pursue further study and those teaching English who wish to gain a further qualification and investigate recent and current developments in the field.
