Description

English is the language of globalisation. It is the mother tongue of around 350 million people, and an even larger number speak it as a second language. The MA in English opens career opportunities in important national and international sectors associated with the cultural and creative industries and in the field of teaching.

Career Opportunities  

    Numerous jobs in the private sector as well as in public institutions require advanced English-language skills and analytical knowledge of the English-speaking world. You will acquire these competencies in the Master’s degree in English. You will be using English at a high interna­tional level and will gain in-depth knowledge of the history, culture, and social conditions of the English-speaking world.   

    Whether you seek a career in the private or non-profit sectors or as a teacher, comprehensive knowledge of the English language and the cultures and societies of English-speaking countries is important. In many situations, a high level of English-language proficiency is indispensable. With a Master’s degree in English, you will have the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary to work in the global economy.

    About the Degree

    In the Master’s degree programme, you can specialise with a combi­nation of obligatory and elective courses as you build on your BA and work with contemporary topics in one of the three theme areas: English-language literature, linguistics, and the history, society, and culture of the English-speaking world.  

    Whether your passion is for Anglophone literature, language, history or all things English, the degree programme allows you to immerse yourself in the latest developments within your field of interest. You will engage in depth with the issue of what constitutes evidence within the fields of literature, linguistics, culture, and history. You will gain greater insight into standard English, its variations, and the changes that have shaped it around the world, as well as myths about language itself. You will gain an understanding of the way cultural phenomena can influence litera­ture, and how literature in turn can influence culture. Approaching liter­ary works with new reading techniques and theories, you will work with creative processes and learn how creativity can be commercialised, as well as storytelling and adaptation. Working with cultural heritage, social media, film, and other elements of visual culture, and engaging deeply with current concerns such as identity politics, gender and media, and transnationalism, you will learn how to apply historical, social, and cul­tural knowledge within contemporary markets. You will be equipped with knowledge, skills, and competencies that are valued in both private and non-profit sectors.
