With Athabasca University’s Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies - Literary Studies, you will learn to think holistically, critically and reflectively. You will find the connections and points of overlap between specialized and generalized knowledge. You will also learn problem-solving skills and policy-making strategies.
Literary Studies encourages students to take an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the study of literature. Works from the English-speaking world as well as works in English translation will be read. Studied works from across the Humanities and the social sciences will allow the literary interests of individual students and the research and teaching strengths of faculty to be explored. Your program will finish with a final integrated project or capstone paper that will exercise and explore your newly acquired skills and knowledge.
You can choose to complete this project in a grouped study capstone course, or through an individual study project that will allow you to:
- explore a question or issue that’s important to you
- relate your research to a work or life situation
- address a community problem
