This course offers the opportunity to pursue English literary studies at an advanced level. Here you will be able to develop the skills and knowledge required for textual, theoretical and historical analysis in the your chosen field while participating fully in a vibrant research environment of published writers and researchers.
Medieval and Early Modern Literature
These are well-known and internationally recognised areas of expertise at Bangor. Members of the School of English undertake research in medieval English poetry, prose and drama; the literature of the Tudor period; the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries; early modern book history; and seventeenth-century literature in poetry and prose as well as on the stage.
Revolution and Modernity, 1750 to the Present
This area of expertise – unique in the UK – offers students the opportunity to become intimately acquainted with the historical, cultural and literary forces that have shaped our contemporary age. Here the student may explore a variety of visual and verbal print cultures, spaces and identities in order to unravel the complex relationship between texts and their contexts. Bangor University, with its neo-Gothic architecture (1911) and its proximity to Telford’s pioneering Menai Suspension Bridge (1826), is itself a physical embodiment of aesthetic revolution and the pursuit of modernity.
Four Nations Literature
This area of expertise offers the opportunity for pioneering study of the literatures of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. In so doing it represents a shift in the focus of the MA in English Literature, inviting postgraduate students to explore in greater detail the literatures of the four nations in the British Isles. It aims to widen the scope of traditional English Literature courses by seeking out continuities and contrasts between the literatures of Britain and Ireland in the modern period. In particular, the Four-Nations emphasis investigates the ways in which the literatures of Britain and Ireland register the effects of modernity on British and Irish culture and society, from the late eighteenth century to the contemporary moment. Bangor University, being conveniently located between London, Dublin and Liverpool, is the ideal place to examine such issues.
Located in North Wales, between the mountains and the sea, Bangor University offers postgraduate degrees within three colleges:
Arts, Humanities and Business
Environmental Sciences and Engineering
Known for its research work, Bangor is renowned in particular for its research into industries like accounting, electronic engineering, sports science and psychology. In fact, the last Research Excellence Framework (REF, 2014) recognised that three quarters of their research as being either world leading or internationally excellent.
Bangor University has achieved a Gold Award, the highest rating possible, in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF, 2017). The TEF assessment took into account teaching quality, learning environment and student outcomes and learning gain.
