The MA by Research in English or Creative Writing is designed for students who have a passion to pursue a research project defined by themselves, but with the support of an academic environment and supervisors.
You have the opportunity to conduct in-depth research into an area of your choice. With the help of dedicated skills sessions and under the guidance of an academic supervisor, you will be expected to write a dissertation, or produce a piece of creative writing of around 25,000 words.
You will join a vibrant research culture with regular research seminars, such as the English and Journalism Research seminar series, 21st Century Research Group and the Nineteenth Century Research Group.
Specialists from the School organise a biennial, international conference series on 21st Century literature, as well as research events with a focus on the 19th Century.
