Fantasy MLitt at the University of Glasgow

Things have come a long way since I did my MLitt in 20*mumble mumble*. Even though I did a course that was considered quite different at the time, it was in a very established academic subject area. While my MLitt dissertation was on a fantasy text, I had to alter the focus of my research to fit in better with the overall area of the course. It’s also a similar situation with my PhD thesis, but working in an area outside of your supervisor’s/discipline’s specialist are is somewhat more expected with a thesis than a taught Masters.

What I mean to say is that I would have loved the change to do an MLitt in fantasy, and Glasgow is a wonderful place for the course. If you’re thinking about PG study I would urge you to apply.

  1. Hello 🙂 I’m thinking of applying for this Master’s degree, so could you please give me some more information about it?

    1. I’m not affiliated with the MLitt, Akylina. I suggest that you contact Rob Maslen at Glasgow using the email address in the flyer or visit their website.

  2. Hey! I’m not from the UK, so I just wanted to ask you a general question. For a taught Master’s degree should you try to contact an adviser beforehand or not?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Jay. When I did my MLitt I did speak to the programme co-ordinators in advance, however I was at an open day and it was a course run by my Alma Mater, so I knew them before hand. Any course organiser will be open to contact from potential students, however you can simply apply for the course without having done this. Hope this helps.
