About

From the poetry of Dunbar and Henryson to the fiction of James Kelman and A.L. Kennedy, the English Literature - Scottish Literature programme offered by The University of Edinburgh presents an extraordinarily rich and varied subject of study, whether considered as a tradition in its own right or in terms of its interaction with English, European or world literatures.

Overview

Whether you’re interested in poetry, fiction or drama, the literary dimensions of the Scottish Enlightenment, the relationship between modernism and nationalism, Walter Scott or Irvine Welsh, Muriel Spark or Robert Louis Stevenson, this English Literature - Scottish Literature programme offered by The University of Edinburgh offers you the opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of supervised independent research in your chosen area.

Training and support

The academic staff you will be working with are all active researchers or authors, many of them prize winners and leading scholars in their fields.

As well as benefiting from their expert supervision, you will undertake a seminar-based programme of training in core research skills and subject-specific methodologies.

You will also have the opportunity to develop other transferable skills through the University’s Institute for Academic Development.

We encourage you to share your research and learn from the work of others through a vibrant programme of Work-in-Progress seminars, reading groups, visiting speakers and conferences.

Our postgraduate journal, Forum, is a valuable conduit for research findings, and provides an opportunity for editorial experience.
