Postgraduate taught degrees

English Literature offers a variety of MLitt programmes for postgraduate taught study, reflecting our research and teaching expertise in Medieval, Renaissance, 19th and 20th century literature and in creative writing. These Masters are usually one year full-time or two years part-time and begin in September. The MFA in Creative Writing is a two year programme aimed at writers who wish to teach creative writing.
