Program Description

MA English Studies combines the study of literatures, linguistics, critical theory and creative writing. Studying English at postgraduate level will allow you to immerse yourself in literature from 1660 to the present day, while also studying linguistic theory and developing your own writing abilities.

You'll develop your skills in analysis, reasoning and communication, creating an excellent foundation for either a communication-based career or further academic study. This course is particularly useful as CPD for English teachers.

A European student fee scholarship and will pay the home tuition fee rate for the duration of your studies.
