Goldsmiths' operating principles for 2022-23 have not yet been finalised but should changes be required to teaching in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will publish these as early as possible for prospective students wishing to start their programme in September 2022.
This unique and intellectually rigorous Masters programme gives you the opportunity to develop the study of literature from a variety of perspectives through a number of flexible pathways.
Your chosen pathway through this programme will ground and further your knowledge in a particular area of literary studies (see below), but you will also have the opportunity to study other areas related to other pathways – bringing different literatures and approaches into exciting, original and productive dialogues with each other.
The pathways you can take are:
- Pathway in American Literature & Culture
- Pathway in Comparative Literature & Criticism
- Pathway in Literature of the Caribbean & its Diasporas
- Pathway in Critical Theory
- Pathway in Modern and Contemporary Literature
- Pathway in Romantic & Victorian Literature & Culture
These enable you to combine theoretical angles with the close reading of a wide range of texts, from different media (literary, filmic, visual), periods, and cultural, geographic and linguistic backgrounds – though all texts will be studied in English, in English translation, or with English subtitles.
