    Course description
    This MA programme is designed to introduce students to the great diversity of post-1900 literature, literary criticism and cultural theory, as well as to the manifold interrelations between these areas of creative and scholarly practice and enquiry. Graduates holding a first degree in English or a related subject will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the discipline and to specialise according to their anticipated career progression. On completion of the programme students will be able to demonstrate a sound, historically informed knowledge of the great diversity of post-1900 literatures and cultural theories, as well as the interrelations between the two.

    Module details
    Typical course units include: England, Identity and Writing: The Empire and After, 1918-90; Key Issues in Twentieth-Century Cultural Criticism; Telling Tales: Appropriating Narratives; Post-Gay Culture; Foucault; Post-colonial Cultures: Gender, Identity and Community; Post-colonial Cultures; Modernist Children; Contemporary Scottish & Writing; The Irish and Scottish Migrant Imagination. Students may also choose a course unit offered by another discipline area as one of their options.

    Career opportunities
    On completion many English postgraduates go (or return) to jobs as teachers or librarians, continue their research, or go to academic jobs. Career paths are extremely varied, however, as other English postgraduates go on or return to careers in law, publishing, retailing, and a range of other fields.
