MA Modules 2016-17

The following modules are those which we intend to run for the MA in 2016-2017. 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. We will let students know as soon as we can if a module becomes unavailable.

Those modules in bold can be taken as the compulsory Critical Theory module for the Core Module (which also includes the compulsory Research Methods course), and as optional modules.
