Study mode

Full Time


Dundee City Campus

Create a degree to meet your own interests and needs, keeping it as broad and wide-ranging as you wish, or combine just two subjects for an interdisciplinary degree. You can pick modules from across our range of Humanities subjects, including comics, creative writing, English studies, film studies, history, philosophy, and science fiction. 

You will also study a core module covering approaches to literature, criticism, and culture, which will allow you to look at literary theory and other theories of visual art, choosing whichever topics suit your study needs.

You will develop enhanced study and research skills.  You will also be able to study:

  • the latest humanities theory (such as critical theory, postmodernism and poststructuralism)
  • archival skills
  • research by non-archival means (such as statistical or database analysis, or oral-history interviewing)

We have a strong research community within the School of Humanities, and you will have the opportunity to participate in regular postgraduate forums, exchanging research ideas and projects. You will also be encouraged to present your research at the annual Humanities Postgraduate Conference.

There are regular visiting speakers and research seminars that you can attend.
