The English Literature programme offered by Plymouth Marjon University is structured around a flexible though clearly framed series of three supervised projects, which provide the opportunity for students to gain a broad critical appreciation of the subject of English Literature, and its place today.
Projects undertaken by students on the programme include, for instance, neo-Victorianism and Steam-punk, the Question of Literary Period (Modernism and Victorianism), Haunting in Contemporary Women’s Writing, Contemporary Issues of Censorship, Feminist Critical Discourse, Romantic Childhood, and Trauma Theory and Holocaust literature. In each case an appropriate project focus is to be agreed with a supervisor.

Be positioned at the cutting edge of contemporary issues and debates about literature.
Flexibility to pursue your research projects over one, two, or three years.
