The MA in Eighteenth-Century Studies (Chawton) is an interdisciplinary programme for the study of eighteenth-century British culture which draws on modules in literature and history, and has contributions from all subject-areas in the Faculty of Humanities.
The MA allows you to specialise in the history and the visual and material culture, as well as the writing of the period. You will be introduced to the literary, political, philosophical and cultural issues of 18th-century Britain through options that explore the rise of the novel, gender and the social order, race and empire, the consumer revolution, modernity, and analyses of art, taste, gender, and politeness. The MA encourages students to work across disciplines and to use archival sources.
This programme is divided into 180 credits. 105 credits are obtained from taught modules with the remaining 75 credits relating to the dissertation.
A masters degree will enable you to further develop the key skills employers seek such as: time management; problem solving; team work; deadline and project management; cultural awareness; working independently; using your initiative; relationship-building; critical thinking and research analysis. Above all, you will learn to communicate your ideas and enthusiasm to a wide range of audiences.
