Interested in postgraduate studies in English?
The Department of English warmly invites students who have completed a BA degree to consider undertaking an Honours year at Otago or, if they wish to study part-time, to consider a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts over several years. Both qualifications serve as a necessary step to enter the MA programme, and consist of a series of taught papers and a research essay on a topic selected by the candidate.
MA or PhD:
Students who have completed a BA Honours or Postgraduate Diploma in the subject at a satisfactory level (normally A- or above) are welcome to apply for an MA, and students who currently already hold an MA are welcome to apply to do a PhD.
For more details about postgraduate study in the Department, see the English Programme's Postgraduate Handbook. Please also check the language requirements for postgraduate study at the University of Otago.
New, in 2017, is the University of Otago City of Literature PhD Scholarship. The Department of English and Linguistics invites applications for this new doctoral scholarship in literary studies. Applications close on 31 March 2017.
