MA in English The MA in English provides a rich and exciting experience of higher level literary study while at the same time developing your independent skills in literary research. You need appropriate entry qualifications and should have a passion for literature. Educational aims The academic purpose of the MA is to equip you to take higher level study in English by building on your existing knowledge of, and interest in, the study of literature. It will provide you with appropriate training in methods of research in literature at postgraduate level. It will give you the opportunity to carry out a substantial piece of independent research and write this up using the appropriate scholarly apparatus. The MA will function both as a standalone post-graduate qualification and as preparatory training in the research methodologies required for doctoral study. Teaching, learning and assessment methods Knowledge and understanding are assessed in the 120 credit module of MA study by means of written tutor marked assignments (TMAs) and an end of module assessment (EMA). The TMAs will be structured so as to emphasise particular learning outcomes at appropriate stages of the module. For example, TMA 01 focuses on developing an understanding of critical and theoretical perspectives in the context of close textual analysis, while TMAs 02 and 03 further encourage you to develop a sense of the historical development of the discipline by bringing a broader picture of reception and interpretation into view. The EMA focuses on developing an understanding of literary and book history, relevant particularly to Learning Outcomes 1 and 2. Learning Outcomes 3–5 are assessed throughout this module in preparation for the 60-credit dissertation module that follows. In the latter, work on a chosen topic within a specialist area is assessed by means of a dissertation. Cognitive skills are assessed in TMAs and an EMA throughout the 120-credit module. The ability to recognise a potential area for research becomes increasingly important for TMAs 04 and 05 and the EMA, where the module builds towards research for the dissertation in the following 60-credit module. An ability to independently recognise a potential area for research in literature is therefore a skill developed and assessed over the two modules of the MA, and is especially important to the assessment of the final dissertation. Through tuition and the marking of assessments, tutors with subject and teaching expertise will guide you towards achieving skills of evaluation and analysis appropriate to MA level. Career impact If you wish to pursue an academic career in higher education or research this degree will provide a pathway toward a higher level research qualification (e.g. Ph.D.), which is essential for such a career. A masters degree can be useful in pursuing a teaching career in schools. If you expect to pursue a career in media, culture or knowledge industries – or are employed already in such industries and seek further qualifications to enhance career progression – a masters degree, alongside relevant skills and experience, can be useful. This degree is relevant to those careers that directly call upon knowledge of English literature and culture. It may also be relevant for careers that demand skills in the creative use and analysis of texts of various sorts, critical thinking and organisation, and understanding of culture in a broad sense. Faculty The Arts Faculty was rated by a Times Higher Education survey as one of the best 100 institutions in the world for the study of the arts. Noted for the strength of our interdisciplinary approaches, our scholars of international standing also teach and research a very wide range of topics and themes in specific subject areas. These include art history; classical studies; creative writing; English; history; music; philosophy; and religious studies. The Faculty also has validated partnerships with several important institutions in the UK and other parts of the world. The head of the Faculty is the Dean, Professor David Rowland. Entry requirements You must hold an honours degree to study for our MA in English course. Your degree need not be in English but you must have the basic skills expected of a graduate in that area. The first module brings you up to date with the latest ideas and approaches in English but does not offer remedial undergraduate training for those who have an inappropriate bachelors degree or inadequate experience. To get an idea of whether the level of work involved and the approach taken on this MA is appropriate for you, you are advised to read some sections of material from the set books list for MA English part 1 (A815). In particular, we would suggest that you read the introduction to The Handbook to Literary Research. Chapter 2 of The Handbook also provides you with an indication of the skills you will need to be ready to develop in order to complete the MA. Other chapters of The Handbook give you an idea of some of the approaches to literary research with which you will have opportunities to engage on the MA. Before you enter the degree you must be able to: write clear, concise, grammatically correct and accurately spelt prose read large quantities of text quickly, accurately and critically classify evidence precisely and assess its value and reliability argue logically, consistently and sceptically marshal various sorts of evidence to support a logical argument.

Systematic post-graduate training in these disciplines can be a critical asset for people who aim to work in a multitude of sectors, organizations and professions. Indicatively, the skills that graduates of the program will derive will be useful: 1. In senior or junior employees of the Public Service and various state or semi-state organizations. 2. Executives of international organizations such as the European Union, the UN, the Council of Europe etc. 3. Executives Non-Governmental Organizations, international or national. 4. Members of the diplomatic corps and other employees in embassies or other agencies and organizations active in the field of interstate relations. 5. To those who are about to undertake practical legal science, either as attorneys or as legal advisors to companies and to public or private organizations, NGOs, international organizations, etc., or as judges. The overall objective of the Programme is to develop the level of knowledge, skills and abilities of graduate students in the abovementioned disciplines, the main axis of the interdisciplinary approach and the consequent realization (a) of the multidimensional nature of the issues that will have to face in their careers and (b) the "goodwill" that brings interdisciplinarity and methodical, multi-faceted approach to the issues. Pillar of the educational approach is to combine the theoretical with the practical dimension of the issues that arise in cognitive Public Law and Political Theory unity and development of the ability to theoretically sound and practically tackle these issues. From the perspective of individual subjects, particular emphasis will be placed on the European dimension of the issues and their links with the challenges, weaknesses and the prospect of European political, economic, cultural and social 'integration »(European integration). 6.2. Specific Objectives The first specific objective of the Graduate Program European Public Law and Policy is to assimilate the basic concepts and magnitudes of Public Law and Political Sciences, such as eg concepts / sizes of state and government, popular or national sovereignty, democracy and the rule of law in its various aspects (liberal, democratic, social), public administration, the Constitution and the production processes of (constituent power), the federation and other forms of transnational cooperation etc. An understanding of these concepts / aggregates is a sine qua non condition for an in-depth approach complex problems, such as European political integration, the challenges posed by the participation of a Member State to the EU, the state status and future prospects of the Cyprus Republic, etc. The second specific objective of the Programme is to provide the necessary knowledge about the basic theoretical approaches and around the rich institutional and legal data in a series of disciplines, such as the constitutional organization of the state and governance, human rights, the EU's functioning and the interface with Member States and national jurisdictions, modern developments in Public Administration (Corporate Management, eGovernment, new accountability mechanisms and transparency and so on), planning and social policy with reference to modern theories of social and economic justice, etc. The program will be structured in a way that enables students to specialize in areas of their special interest, but only after you have previously assimilated the general directions of interdisciplinary and methodical research as well as basic knowledge of the key figures Public Law and Political Theory. The third specific objective of the Programme is the systematic cultivation of di-scientism, avoiding misunderstood concepts around the topic, in particular avoiding, on the one hand, the extreme position of full independence of Legal Science of Political Science and the other hand, the equally extreme position that fails to distinguish between substantive and methodological specificities of disciplines. The program aspires to be, inter alia, "workshop" and scope for developing a coherent interdisciplinary mindset, through identifying the complexity of the problems of space, but also through the careful delineation of the different disciplines and methodological approaches to legal science and political science respectively. The ultimate goal is to provide stakeholders the tools for research and PhD thesis, in order to strengthen and guide members of the two Departments on the need for foreign language publications in journals and inspections. Career Prospects: As mentioned, the program is aimed at legal aspects holders, Political Science and / or Public Administration, International and / or European Studies, International Relations, and other relevant qualifications, who seek to gain additional qualifications that will help them in employment or Best performance in a multitude of sectors and occupations, including in the Civil Service and various state or semi-state agencies, international organizations, as indicatively the European Union, the UN and the Council of Europe, in Non-Governmental Organizations International or nationwide, the diplomatic corps and embassies or other agencies and organizations active in the field of interstate relations, a whole range of activities related to the practice of legal science (lawyers, solicitors, judges etc.) The need to increase knowledge and skills of these people are given the demand for such a possibility is apparent. On the other hand, the offer and the choices of those concerned is quite limited. In Cyprus there is currently bidding on Graduate Programs of cognitive unity of Public Law and Political Science, and the proposed program can be selected from graduates of Greek universities who seek graduate education and training in these areas of special interest. The development at the graduate level of education and university research in scientific fields covered by the program will bring new opportunities to people who would offer their services in the above key areas and improve therefore the overall level of knowledge and management issues, increasing associated benefits to the community. Access to Further Studies: Graduates of this program will be able to pursue doctoral studies in one of the specialist fields that make up the cognitive section of the Program [-]
