MA Languages, Literature & Cultures at Durham University

[email protected]


The MA in Languages, Literatures & Cultures will take you on an intellectual journey across continents with an enthralling Study of Languages, Literatures & Cultures.


Our MA in Languages, Literatures & Cultures will draw on a vast wealth of knowledge in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Hispanic and Russian Studies to take you on an intellectual journey across continents through an enthralling Study into Languages, Literatures & Cultures and how they are transmitted, exchanged and established.


The course will nurture your interests in world literatures and comparative studies by enabling you to work on literary materials in their original language, understanding their local, regional and national contexts and exploring what happens when they become entwined with intellectual elements such as Translation, Philosophy and Visual Culture.


The course is taken full-time over one year and will consist of innovative core and optional modules ranging from Women & the Novel in the 18th Century to Anti-Capitalist Poetics and from Science & the Enlightenment to Environmental Philosophy.


You will also be required to complete a dissertation involving the detailed study of a particular aspect of a topic related to world literature.


The School of Modern Languages & Cultures will provide you with a stimulating environment for your study and the strongest emphasis will be on your own research which you will carry out under the supervision of a subject specialist.


The School is also home to several cutting-edge research groups and we will encourage you to become an active member of the academic community, with the important Centre for Visual Arts & Cultures and Centre for Culture & Ecology both offering innovative opportunities for engagement.


Our approach to learning and research encourages a freedom of thinking and expression about language and cultures that provides sought-after skills and a worldview that will be attractive to top employers.


In an environment of globalisation, the ability to display a knowledge and understanding of the diverse world we inhabit and to understand and communicate effectively is crucial.


Following graduation, we offer the option of building on your research activity at a higher academic level and progressing into teaching with roles at universities across Europe, the USA, Australia and the Middle East a viable option.


If your aspirations lie more towards developing a professional career, our qualifications offer a weather of opportunities with recent graduates taking up positions in university administration, translation, analytics, museum curating, rare bookselling and the French film industry.
