MASTERS IN ENGLISH IN LITERATURE AND MODERNITY


Master’s students are required to complete a minor dissertation and four taught courses of which no more than two can be at HEQSF level 8 (4000 level).

This programme focuses on the theory, historical contexts and literary expression of the concept “modernity” from Renaissance to Postmodernism.  It covers both metropolitan and South African and African expressions and developments of modernity, thereby allowing students to study a broad range of historical conditions and literary and philosophical texts through the focus provided by a single, key concept.  There are three compulsory courses, one elective and a dissertation.  The coursework counts 50% and the dissertation counts 50% of the final mark.
