The MA by Research programme requires you to prepare a dissertation of up to 40,000 words on a topic of your choice, for which an academic staff member will provide expert supervision.
You can study the MA by Research on campus or by distance learning.
We have particular strengths and traditions in studying the interface and interactions between literature (and other forms of cultural expression) and the socio-political contexts in which they were produced. We also encourage and enable interdisciplinary research, and have a successful history of joint supervisions with other departments and schools within the College of Arts and Law (and beyond).
