The Masters of Arts programme in Literature and Cultural Studies aims to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on literary and cultural texts and theories. The papers offered provide contemporary perspectives on understanding literature and culture within not just historical frameworks but also contemporary contexts. Texts and ideologies selected for study are aimed at creating discursive spaces within as well as outside the classroom that encourage learners to investigate the contexts in which they live. In keeping with Christ University’s vision of excellence, this course is up to date with the latest theories and application skills in the fields of literary and cultural studies. The Programme Objectives
are to provide advanced knowledge in terms of understanding literary history as well as significant texts and movements and creative thinking skills that enable the learner to demonstrate independence and
an interdisciplinary focus on the cultural and sociopolitical contexts in which we read literary texts
of thought. The course provides hands-on training in academic writing, starting with the basics and culminating in a dissertation and development in higher order communication skills aimed at providing students graduating from the course with essential skills to foster research culture as well as professionalism in various branches of the fields of study.
