If you’re interested in text, narratives and literature published and adapted across a range of platforms, and want to know about the cultural industries that put them there; this is the course for you. Our MA Literary Media course is ideal for anyone in the creative industries: from PR to publishing, from pressure groups to new media
The course enables you to combine the skills of literary analysis developed during an undergraduate degree with a series of new theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of English in a range of different media.
It invites you to explore the proposition that literature exists in a number of different forms, from film to print fiction, and from the internet to television. In other words, the course de-privileges the idea of the printed text and considers it alongside the kinds of narrative that exist in other media.
Our academic staff members include leading national and international scholars in the fields of modern and contemporary literature, media studies, cultural studies and new media writing. In addition, the Faculty of Media & Communication has a number of practising media professionals whose experience of working within the media industries complements the academic expertise of our researchers.
This combination of academic rigour with professional practice is ideally suited to helping you develop transferable skills during your Master’s degree.
