MA English Literature after BA journalism?Watch
Need more help on going postgrad?
You may find your range of options for a literature masters more limited if you haven't done a literary course (e.g. English, Classics, some modern languages courses, comparative literature etc) for your first degree. They might also expect you to have particular familiarity already with the literature of a given period or region if it's a more specialised masters degree (which more or less by definition most masters degrees will be).
Would it be a demerit or would I be likely to get a place on an English Masters with a BA in journalism?
I would recommend that you contact the universities that you're interested in. They should be able to give you an idea if your BA would be suitable.
I hope this helps!
