Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

All students in the English Literatures programme from Keele University :

 

  • follow a full research training programme 
  • take dedicated masters modules designed to deepen their understanding of issues in literature and theory
  • choose an elective module from a variety of offerings, including modules from the MA in Creative Writing, those offered as part of our English, English and American Literatures, and Film research-led undergraduate teaching, as well as an optional Work Placement module
  • work with a research-active supervisor to develop and pursue a dissertation topic of their own choosing
  • receive support if applying for PhD study at Keele University or further afield”

Career:

Pursuing postgraduate study enhances students’ employment prospects because it nurtures more advanced critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and communication skills than those developed through an undergraduate degree. Throughout the course we offer students the opportunity to reflect on the skills they are developing and, importantly, how they can articulate these skills in applications and interviews. We work closely with the university’s Careers and Employability Service to offer bespoke sessions on postgraduate employability throughout the academic year and students also have the option to complete a Work Placement module as part of their course.

Most graduate jobs do not require a specific degree as qualification which means our graduates go on to work in a wide range of careers from teaching to management consulting. However, our graduates typically go on to work in fields such as culture and heritage, education, marketing, communications, public relations, publishing, copywriting, and information management. A number of students also go on to complete PhDs at Keele and elsewhere.
