Course Introduction

This Literary London, MA programme offers you the opportunity to study varied literary imaginings of London from the time of Shakespeare to the present day. The aims of the programme are: to introduce you to the rich diversity of literary responses to London and to develop your analytical and critical thinking through a variety of guided assessments; to consider the depiction of London's contested and multicultural identity via a range of theoretical and methodological approaches; to develop students' research and presentation skills to prepare them for further academic research and the job market; and to foster a dynamic and enjoyable learning environment in which students are encouraged to bring their own experience, writing and reading to bear on the subject of London's literature.

Students are assessed through an essay portfolio, oral presentations, and a dissertation. Graduates from this programme can pursue further academic research, archival or commercial research, or teach journalism or creative writing.
