MA English: Twentieth-Century Literature
The Department of English at Exeter has considerable expertise in the area of twentieth-century literature. Research topics range from English poetry of the First World War, modernism and mid-century confessional writing to contemporary comic books and the postcolonial novel. The MA pathway reflects that variety, and allows students to adapt the course to their own specialist interests.
Students opting for the MA in English Studies with Twentieth-Century Literature Pathway will choose two of the available twentieth-century literature modules, two other English modules (which might be in twentieth century film, creative writing, American literature, or any other literary topic), and complete a Dissertation in the area.
