Building on the University’s strong tradition of science fiction scholarship and teaching, and the fact that we host the largest specialist collection of science fiction materials in Europe, this programme will equip you with knowledge required to understand the role that science fiction plays in society.
You will situate your reading in appropriate contexts, but also learn to think about what science fiction reveals about perceptions of technology, apocalyptic fears, the changing face of the future, and the relationship between literature and science.
The independence of study, clarity of expression and management of time demanded by all our taught programmes equip the successful graduate with the skills and knowledge base required for further academic study and research in English and other areas.
Many graduates of the English Literature - Science Fiction Studies programme from University of Liverpool also choose to enter careers such as teaching, publishing and journalism, or to work in the business sector, often in human resources, administration, marketing or sales.
Successful alumni have gone on to teach English at elementary, secondary and tertiary levels in schools around the globe. A significant number of MA graduates have also continued their studies to PhD level.
