The English Department in Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, has offered a highly-successful and popular one-year taught M.A. degree programme in Modern English Literature since September 2002. This programme is designed for full-time students and we normally accept ten students each year. The cap on numbers ensures close personal tuition. Part-time students may also be admitted but in their case completion of the programme will take two years.
Aims of the Programme
• To widen and deepen student's knowledge and appreciation of English literature and contemporary critical theory
• To familiarise students with traditional and modern technological sources for research in English literature
• To equip students with the knowledge and skills required for doctoral studies
• To enhance students' career opportunities
