Research degrees

Our graduate research programmes in Medieval and Modern Languages offer a vibrant and unique environment to embark on advanced study on the global contexts of European languages, literatures, and cultures.

Our students work on projects across the Faculty’s designated areas of research specialisms, including Performance and Voice, Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies, Gender and Diversity, Ecology and Environmental Humanities, Cognitive Literary Studies, Medical Humanities and Life Writing, Comparative Literature, and Translation Studies. Advanced research students at Oxford complete a major piece of original research leading to the award of a DPhil or MLitt degree on topics drawn from medieval and early modern literature and culture through to modern and contemporary literature, film and cultural history.
