About

Whether undertaken for the continued love of literature, or for personal or professional development, studying the English Literature programme from Northumbria University will help you gain a more confident critical voice, and advanced analytical and research skills.

Overview

You will be taught by internationally recognised scholars who are at the cutting-edge of their areas of research. Our modules change regularly, allowing staff to share their passion and expertise on their specialist topics with students.

You’ll also benefit from our partnership with New Writing North, who will provide access and insight into the thriving cultural and literary scene in the region.

The Humanities department runs a number of exciting research groups, many of which are interdisciplinary in method and scope. Within English we have particular strengths in the Early Modern period, the Long Eighteenth Century, Modernism, Gender, and Popular Culture. The diversity of our expertise means we can support you in pursuing your interests, wherever they may lead.

This English Literature programme from Northumbria University is an ideal choice if you are interested in continuing your studies at PhD level, but are still looking for inspiration on exactly where to focus. It will also provide you with the professional skills to succeed within teaching, museums/archives, public policy, and project management careers, among many others.

Career Edge

On completion of the MA, you will have improved your employability through enhancing your critical skills and attitudes, presentation skills, and reflective and evaluative abilities. You will be self-motivating, be capable of making decisions in complex situations, and possess a thirst for independent learning. 

In addition to these personal skills, you will have demonstrated a critical awareness of the current research and scholarship within your discipline, facilitating your ability to interpret knowledge in a variety of professional fields.

The MA builds on undergraduate skills, distinguished by the level of intensity, complexity, and density of study.  Advanced communication skills and media literacy must be demonstrated along with exceptional ability for time management, ethical and professional understanding, and highly developed research and inquiry skills.

There are considerable opportunities for you to advance your studies further, and advice in writing PhD and funding applications is available. The course offers a qualification that may enhance promotion prospects in some professions – most notably teaching, professional research, museums/archives, public policy, and project management.
