English is an international language – it is the native language of around 350 million people and the second language of many more. As the language of globalisation, it enables you to communicate across borders, whether in culture or commerce. Today, the private job market, public institutions and PhD degree programmes require English language skills and knowledge of the Anglophone world. You will acquire these competencies in the Master’s programme in English. In this degree programme, you will learn to use English at a high international level and gain in-depth knowledge of the history, culture and social conditions of the English-speaking world.

Insight Into An Entire Culture

Lectures, classroom lessons, group work, and presentations by you and your fellow students will give you an insight into the language and culture of the English-speaking countries, both past and present.
By analysing literary works, films and societal development, you will gain insight into the culture and identity of different periods of history. You will examine how history has been written, interpreted, and rewritten in the modern world. You will gain an understanding of the way cultural phenomena can influence the film industry and how film, in turn, can influence cultural phenomena. You will also learn about the development of language, and the challenges and pitfalls involved in translating from one language to another.


    An ever-increasing number of workplaces have English as their corporate language; you will therefore be in a position to find employment in numerous international companies. In your studies, you will gain insights that have direct applications in fields such as tourism and cultural exchange, communication and IT, or you may choose a career in teaching, translating or publishing. You could also pursue a career in research, either by applying for admission to one of Aarhus University’s PhD schools or to one of the other postgraduate programmes worldwide that will be open to you.
