The Interdisciplinary English Studies course at the University of Strathclyde focuses on the representation, imaginary transformation and symbolisation of culture, as mediated through language and literature. It does this by drawing on the interdisciplinary strengths of the school, and the English Studies section within the school. The class will prepare you to think about the ways in which all aspects of a culture depend on narrative, fiction and language. You'll be able to apply this either to working in education, business, government or a third sector organisation. The course also provides a preparation for undertaking a PhD, which generally requires a Masters qualification as an entry requirement.
The course will be assessed by written assignments, and in some cases a presentation will form a part of the assessment.
Graduates in the MLitt in Interdisciplinary English Studies have particular skills in close analysis of textual practices, in the understanding of the symbolic structures of culture, and the role of tradition; they are skilled in formulating arguments and in writing documents; they are skilled in undertaking research in an original and innovative way and reporting on it.
These skills make graduates from this course suited to a variety of further opportunities, including progress to PhD, for which this course would be a prerequisite eg for AHRC funding.
