Overview

The School of English at Nottingham has long been in the forefront of research and teaching in the interface between language, literature and culture. 

This web-based MA Literary Linguistics by Web-based Distance Learning course from the University of Nottingham provides an exciting integration of English language in literary studies. You will work with several leading world figures in the course of discovering your own position in language and literature: the programme covers a wide range of material, with options to develop your own thinking and pursue your own interests and research. 

The principle of language study that we have established at Nottingham combines theoretical and ideological dimensions with practical applications; we aim to be rigorous and principled while offering an approach to literary language study that is fundamentally humane. 

We will explore the discourses of literary texts and literary reading, from the most focused study of the texture of language right up to the ideological and cultural practices of world literatures. 

We believe that linguistics and literary study cannot be separated, and we aim to turn you into a creative-thinking interdisciplinary expert in literary linguistics.
