About

The MPhil Italian Studies course from The University of Manchester enables you to carry out a piece of original research at a department that undertakes internationally recognised research that is both wide-ranging and markedly interdisciplinary.

Overview

We have a particular focus on Modernism, arts and power, the Italian Fascist regime and European totalitarianisms, the history of the book and periodical studies, late medieval and Renaissance literary and cultural studies, translation studies, contemporary literature and arts, linguistics and sociolinguistics.A considerable number of PhD candidates in Italian have pursued research across fields from the medieval to modern, including linguistics, cultural and translation studies, often supported by funding secured from major AHRC research project awards.

Italian was also at the forefront of the relaunch of the John Rylands Research Institute , based at the University's special collections, securing PhD bursaries for candidates working on the world-class holdings of early Italian printed books and manuscripts from the Spencer, Christie and Bullock collections.

Teaching and learning

The MPhil Italian Studies course from The University of Manchester is suitable for students who wish to undertake original research over a shorter period than the PhD. It involves one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.

A satisfactory MPhil topic is one that a suitably qualified and properly supervised student can bring to completion within the permitted timeframe.

Please note that all MPhil students are required to undertake research training as part of their MPhil programme.

Programme Structure

Coursework and assessment

  • Your research will normally be supervised by two members of staff at the University. Your supervisors will most likely be members of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, but if your research requires it, we may arrange for supervision by someone outside the School.
  • Supervisory arrangements at Manchester are governed by a Code of Practice which is available on the University's website.
  • Regular meetings will be held with the supervisors, and details of each of the meetings will be recorded.
  • Research panels (consisting of at least three academic staff, including the supervisors) are held once per semester to monitor progress.
