This new interdisciplinary MA course combines the literary theory of
science fiction and fantasy with the study of their language and
rhetoric, their subgenres and their place in the publishing industry. It
examines science fiction and fantasy as products shaped by interactions
between the entertainment industry, reviewers and critics as well as
their own fans. By analysing how the boundaries of these genres have
been established, policed, challenged and extended, students will learn
to apply their own theories to a range of popular works - and have the
option to produce their own original writing.
On this course, students will:
•      * Become experts in one of the fastest growing areas of popular
•      * Explore a variety of fields including literature, publishing,
film and television, linguistics and creative writing
•      * Network with professionals in the industry
•      * Study without disrupting their work / family life with our
blended learning delivery
Course delivery: Our course starts in May 2018, with a two-week
intensive residency in September 2018.
Applications are open now. Find out more and apply now at
