As an interdisciplinary programme, the MA is taught by scholars from many different disciplines across the University, including the Schools of English, Arts, History and Law and the Departments of Philosophy, Classical & Archaeological Studies, Comparative Literature and Religious Studies. You take four modules across the autumn and spring terms, including one core module and from a variety of optional modules, before undertaking a supervised 15,000-word dissertation over the summer.
The Medical Humanities programme from University of Kent is aimed primarily at people with a humanities background, but we also welcome healthcare practitioners or those with medical backgrounds who are interested in the growing field of the medical humanities.
Many career paths can benefit from the writing and analytical skills that you develop as a postgraduate student in the School of English. Our students have gone on to work in academia, journalism, broadcasting and media, publishing, writing and teaching; as well as more general areas such as banking, marketing analysis and project management.
