With an overall focus on literature, politics and social change, our MA English Literature will equip you to engage with the interface between literature and society. By reading and contextualising a wide range of texts within their critical, cultural and historical contexts, you will be encouraged to evaluate the ideas of others and develop your own critical perspectives and areas of specialised knowledge.
You will develop skills and knowledge through a range of teaching and learning methods and by producing essays, presentations, annotated bibliographies, review essays, dissertation proposals, and a major research project in the form of a dissertation. The skills you learn will provide new directions for future employment and form the basis for further study.
The English Literature programme at Anglia Ruskin University will give you the higher-level skills to stand out in today’s competitive job market.
If you are a teacher, you could study with us to update your knowledge and further your existing career, or even move into another discipline. Or, if you are hoping to move on to an academic post, this course will give you the research skills you will need for a PhD.
