Masters in Reading for Life
The Masters in Reading for Life is the first course in the UK to study how creative literature and its depiction of human troubles and possibilities resonates with people emotionally and imaginatively; and how reading can contribute to health in its broadest sense.
Taking place at our London Campus, this course is available in seperate modules which count as the first step towards a Masters in Reading for Life. The first module is entitled 'Bibliotheraphy: Therapy Through Literature' and is an intensive but personally moving reading course designed to show the value of literary thinking through the close exploration of literary language across the ages, in the search for human meaning. There are opportunities for informal writing-practice, with feedback, allowing participants to develop their personal thinking beyond merely conventional essay-exercises.
