About English at University of Reading

The MA in English presents students with an exciting range of topics and periods, from the Renaissance stage to minority literatures in contemporary Britain.

We deploy our distinctive research strengths, and our world-leading literary collections, to produce a degree that embodies the best of contemporary, critical and archival work. The department’s research widely supports all the teaching on the MA, from Medieval to Contemporary Literature, including postcolonial and world literatures and creative writing.

You have the freedom to choose your own pathway through bespoke strands, with careful advice at every stage and unique interdisciplinary modules to choose from.

You will receive detailed one-to-one guidance on your dissertation, which might be a creative writing portfolio, an edition of a Beckett manuscript, a fin de siècle project oriented around our Wilde collections, or a theoretically informed reading of diasporic fiction.
