These following modules are those which we intend to run for the MA 2015-2016. This is the best information that we have currently. However, the availability of modules is affected by staff leave and particularly at this level, where modules are based on staff research interests, it is very hard to replace the tutor if unforeseen circumstances arise. We are also unable to run a module if there is insufficient student take-up, but last year only two modules did not run for this reason. We will let students know as soon as we can if a module becomes unavailable for next year.
For MA in English students ONLY: At the moment, the spread of modules means that we are able to offer the following pathways through the MA in English: Romantic and Victorian; Theory; Psychoanalysis; Shakespeare and the British Dramatic Tradition; Open; Modern and Contemporary Pathway. Students are advised to choose the modules which interest them first and foremost; the pathways are there to offer guidance in choosing modules but should be enabling rather than prescriptive.
