English Postgraduate Coursework Program

The postgraduate programs in English Literature and English Language studies have been designed to allow students to extend their studies in English beyond the undergraduate level, with a greater emphasis on in-depth study of current directions in particular fields and exploratory discussion with academic specialists. Recent graduates have undertaken these programs variously in order to become more competitive professionally, to renew or refresh their expertise, and to enjoy new discoveries in a favourite field of endeavour.
