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
