The MA English Literature at Liverpool John Moores University course explores the deeper potential of that most eclectic and interdisciplinary of subjects—English—and extends your reading and research into exciting new areas. You will master skills of research, analysis, argument and writing that are both a vital preparation for doctoral research and highly valued by employers.
The MA English Literature is designed to help you think critically about the role of literature in history and explore some of the new directions scholars in English are taking.
The programme consists of a series of modules each within a theme that highlights key approaches and issues in contemporary literary studies:
Place and Mobilities examine the way space structures our thinking about literature and culture, rethinking terms such as locality and environment, nation and world
Objects and Bodies address ongoing debates about the body in history and, more recently, emerging theories of the relation between humans, animals, and things
Our applied learning techniques and strong industry connections ensure our students are fully prepared for the workplace on graduation and understand how to apply their knowledge in a real world context.
The MA English Literature will enhance your prospects in a wide variety of careers, such as teaching, freelance writing, research, academia, print journalism and the creative and heritage industries.
