Devised by leading experts in the literature, history, cultural heritage and digital humanities of the nineteenth century, this interdisciplinary taught Masters degree enables you to explore a range of classic and less well-known texts to gain advanced skills in academic writing and research. From discussions of Romantic creativity to Victorian entertainments, as well as fin de siècle fears and horrors, you will investigate how contemporary debates and developments around the nineteenth century continue to shape popular culture today.
