¿Qué aprenderé?

The MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict (German lead language) aims to provide students who already have a background in German at undergraduate level with an opportunity to specialise in the area of literary analysis with particular emphasis on narratives of conflict in the cultures and societies of German-speaking countries. The programme introduces students to academic research, new ideas and theoretical approaches. It aims to equip students with academic, analytical, creative, reflective and presentation skills in order to foster interest and involvement in the field of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with specific emphasis on narratives of conflict. It also aims to enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts of European languages, literatures, cultures and societies, in particular with regard to Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

It is possible to study modules of particular interest without completing a Masters degree or to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma (Level 9) after completing 60 credits of taught modules.

Course Structure

The MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict involves two elements: a set of modules on which students will be examined in January and in May/June, and a dissertation (Minor Thesis) which students complete after their second semester.

1. Students choose a ‘lead language’; they are obliged to take both language modules in this language.

2. Students have to take at least one (in French two) of the subject-specific modules offered by the lead language subject.

3. Students have to take ML 610 (Research Skills) and the modules concerned with narratives of conflict.

4. For the remaining 10 credits, students can either choose the remaining subject-specific module(s), or they can choose two of the remaining SMLLC modules.

5. The Viva Voce Examination ML629 (conducted – at least partly – in the ‘lead language’) in early June.

6. Minor theses will be supervised by SMLLC Full-time members of staff after consultation with the student.

Career Options

This interdisciplinary MA gives students an ideal starting point for an academic career in literary studies, conflict studies or language studies. The combination of subject-specific, interdisciplinary and transferable skills, which are the intended outcome of the programme, would also make it a useful qualification for entry into the teaching profession, research work, or for careers with an international dimension, in diplomacy, journalism, business or academia.
