The MA English Literature at Bishop Grosseteste University offers opportunities to deepen your passion for literatures in English through research-led modules that engage and push the boundaries of new and emerging disciplinary frameworks and debates.


Supported by a team of academic specialists, this English Literature programme at Bishop Grosseteste University creates a space for you to advance your academic and communication talents and further your professional prospects.

We offer a close and mutually supportive learning community that recognises and responds to your distinctive learning needs and interests through seven student-centred flexible and vibrant modules that engage you with the latest literary debates by exploring a stimulating range of genres, approaches, authors, and themes.

Our innovative modes of assessment are designed to develop your interests: you will choose texts, writers, genres, theories, themes, and literary periods on which to focus independently.

Careers & Further study

This Masters course will prepare you for a variety of professions that depend on advanced critical, literary and analytical skills, and also depend on the sophisticated communication and research abilities you will gain.

This may include careers such as teaching, publishing, librarianship, journalism, professional writing or within academia (through obtaining a PhD). However, a Masters in English need not result in a career specifically tied to the subject.

Our graduates will also be in a strong position to move into occupations relating to marketing, management or public relations.
