Course programme

The programme involves taught sessions plus a period of research and writing over the summer. You will study two core and two optional (special topics) courses, and undertake supervised study of a specialised topic of your choice, researching and writing a 15,000-word dissertation.

You can choose two of the bespoke Modernities special topic courses; with the convenor’s permission, you may select one special topic from any MLitt course offered in the College of Arts.

You will also take the school graduate training course which covers research skills, writing at postgraduate level, crafting a research proposal and writing a dissertation, communicating your work to a variety of audiences, and preparing a proposal and funding application for PhD work, should you choose to pursue doctoral research.

The programme is made up of three components.

  • Two core courses: taught over two ten-week teaching periods, from October to December and January to March.
  • Two special topic courses: also taught in ten-week blocks. Full-time students usually study one topic course in each semester.
  • A dissertation: written during the final phase of the course, from April to September.

Part-time students take both core courses and the graduate training course in the first year and two special topic courses and the dissertation in their second year of study.
