The School is highly interdisciplinary with research and teaching in language and translation studies, literary studies, cinema, cultural studies and visual cultures. We offer a wide range of languages and cultures. We have specialists in Catalan, Chinese (Mandarin), Czech, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The programme offers a high degree of flexibility and also allows you to take courses from across the Colleges of Arts and Social Sciences, giving you the opportunity to create a specifically tailored, interdisciplinary curriculum. If you prefer, the programme can also be tailored to concentrate on a single language area or culture. We offer a friendly and supportive environment and a lively postgraduate community, with student-led research seminars and social activities. The core course and the design and execution of an extended research project will equip you with a broad set of transferable skills and also provide you with the necessary preparation if you wish to continue to doctoral research. You can take the MLitt in Modern Languages and Cultures whether or not you already have a knowledge of one or more foreign languages; you may follow the course entirely in English translation, or make use of any linguistic skills you have in our areas of expertise. If you wish to take up a new language, this can be part of your programme of study. Our MLitt is complemented within the School by the MSc in Translation Studies and the MLitt in Comparative Literature.
