English Studies

MA English Studies

This is a consecutive two-year full-time course or a four-year part-time course with a strong research orientation. The course of study is modularised and encourages a specialisation in one of the two fields  “Culture and Literature” and “Linguistics and Applied Linguistics”, but also allows students to opt for no specialisation. Culture and Literature enables students to combine specially designed courses on literary and cultural history and theory with a broad range  of interdisciplinary modules. Linguistics and Applied Linguistics focuses on the description and analysis of the English language in the light of current linguistic theories and teaching approaches.
