University of St Andrews
School of Psychology
The School of English has expanded during the past decade, and its members of staff have a wide range of research interests. The encouragement of postgraduate study has been a special concern of the School, and the number of graduate students has grown markedly in recent years. Although this has been particularly noticeable in the fields of Creative Writing, Mediaeval English, Shakespeare, and Scottishliterature, postgraduate research has also been undertaken in many other areas, such as theatre history, contemporary drama, Romanticism, nineteenth-century poetry, and the novel in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Incoming graduate students will find themselves part of an active academic community in the School, with regular seminars and social gatherings for all postgraduates and staff, in addition to the normal individual meetings between graduate students and their supervisors.
