MA English literature part 1

Our MA in English Literature introduces you to studying literature 'in the world' across three broad themes: 'Literature and the Popular', 'Literature and Revolution' and 'Literature and the Global'. You'll also have a wide choice of optional texts: from early-modern manuscripts to detective fiction; and from classical tragedy to the global short story. You'll encounter actual archives and databases and be introduced to digitised manuscripts and other original materials as you develop skills in research and analysis. You'll also work like a professional researcher using specific approaches, following up clues, reviewing context, and making exciting discoveries about your topic.
