The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The English master's programmes are designed to serve both as an autonomous degree for students wishing to pursue more advanced studies in English literature, and as a solid foundation for doctoral research. The MSt programme consists of four main components, through which you have the opportunity to pursue interests within your chosen MSt strand, as well as across period boundaries. In the first two terms, you will take a core course (A) tailored to your specific programme, a compulsory course in book history and theories of text (B) also tailored to your programme, and choose two courses from a wide range of options (C). Under the guidance of a specialist supervisor you will also research and write a dissertation, which is submitted in the final term. The MSt programme is assessed via the submission of four pieces of coursework. In addition to the dissertation, you will submit three essays of 6,000 to 7,000 words â?? one at the end of the first term, and two at the end of the second term â?? relating to the B and C courses that have been taken. All course work will be completed by the end of the second term (Hilary term), leaving the summer term (Trinity term) to complete the dissertation, which is submitted in June. A. Core course: Literature, contexts and approaches This is the core course for this MSt. It is formally non-assessed but compulsory. Classes on literature, contexts and approaches introduce representative key texts and current debates on the literature and cultural history of the period. This course is designed to provide a solid foundation for advanced literary study. B. Core course: Bibliography, theories of text, history of the book, manuscript studies This is a compulsory, assessed course, taught via a range of lectures and seminars in each of the first two terms. It is designed to train you for research in English, through the study of bibliography, palaeography, book history and theories of text (appropriate to the relevant period). C. Special options The special option courses allow you to develop and pursue your research interests, whether related or unrelated to other work undertaken as part of the MSt degree. You may choose to study any C-course option from any period. The courses are taught in weekly, small group seminars. The list of available C-course options changes from year to year; courses taken by MSt students in this strand have, in recent years, included â??Wordsworth and Coleridge 1797-1817â??, â??Prose Fiction of the Late Eighteenth Centuryâ??, â??Reading Visual Satireâ??, â??The Philosophical Poem: Pope, Wordsworth and Tennysonâ??, â??Forming the Critical Mindâ??, â??Womenâ??s Poetry, 1680-1830â?? and â??Senses of Humour: Wordsworth to Ashberyâ??. D. Dissertation You will write a 10,000- to 11,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choice, determined in consultation with your course convenors and dependent on the availability of a suitable academic supervisor. Dissertation supervisors will be appointed towards the end of Michaelmas Term; in Hilary Term, there is a faculty workshop on MSt dissertations.
