We offer a Taught MA in English Literary Studies with a wide variety of modules, which can be moulded to fit various formal pathways. This gives you the freedom to specialise, or to study broadly.
By undertaking one of our MA courses, you'll be studying with acknowledged experts in the subject, and will write a dissertation or carry out a research or Creative Writing project on the subject of your choice. Durham is one of the best English Departments in the country, offering the opportunity to study at the highest level in a supportive environment.
