English and American Literature - MA
Our postgraduate degree allows you to explore the richness of English Literature from a wide range of historical periods, cultures and genres, and empowers you to strengthen and expand your own interests.
By choosing from a variety of modules, you will have the freedom to specialise in a particular area or discover links between topics as diverse as queerness in the 18th century and the politics of Cold War America; colonialism in India and the figure of the North American “Indian”; or the contemporary climate crisis and disability activism.
This wealth of topics will give you access to staff with interests and expertise in issues relating to various critical perspectives, such as postcolonialism and psychoanalysis, Marxism and modernism, disability studies and translation.
Students applying for a postgraduate degree must normally have a British first or second class honours degree in a relevant or appropriate subject, or the equivalent from an internationally recognised institution. However, all applicants are considered on an individual basis and additional qualifications, and professional qualifications and experience will also be taken into account when considering applications. Please note that each program of study will have specific entry requirements too. Look up your program using our course finder and check under the 'Entry requirements' tab.
