    Course details

    The MLitt is a one-year full-time programme combining advanced study and supervised research. German studies may be taken as a single-subject pathway within the MLitt, or you can combine it with one of five other pathways:

    French studies

    Italian studies

    Middle Eastern literary and cultural studies (Arabic and Persian)

    Russian studies

    Spanish and Latin American studies.

    Students from each of the six pathways start their studies with a module in literary and cultural theory. The module provides indispensable training for advanced learning in each pathway and helps students make new academic and social connections. You will explore a broad chronological and national range of seminal literary and cultural thinkers and theories through which texts and cultural productions of all kinds may be conceptualised, analysed and criticised.

    You will apply these skills in the optional modules which make up the remainder of the taught component of the programme. The optional modules you will take will vary depending on whether you take German studies as a single-subject pathway or in combination with another pathway.

    Within the German studies pathway, the optional modules allow you to acquire advanced knowledge of contexts that have shaped literature and culture in the German-speaking lands from the Middle Ages to the present day. You?may also undertake guided study on a specialised topic drawing on research expertise in the Department of German.


    Study a single-subject pathway or combine two pathways to create a programme that reflects your academic interests and ambitions.

    Small class sizes of no more than 20 students provide a close-knit postgraduate community and friendly academic environment.

    Teaching is geared towards encouraging and directing independent research.

    Students receive training in traditional and new research methodologies and have the opportunity to broaden their language portfolios.


    Alongside your academic learning, you will develop your broader capabilities and employability. All Masters students have access to the
