About this course

MA English Studies is a consecutive two-year full-time course (or four-year part-time course) with a total of 120 ECTS points (60 ECTS/30ECTS points per academic year). The course of study is modularised and encourages a specialisation in one of the two fields 'Culture and Literature' or 'Linguistics and Applied Linguistics'. 

  • Culture and Literature:This field enables students to combine specially designed courses on literary and cultural history and theory with a broad range of interdisciplinary modules. Clearly situated in historical approaches, Culture and Literature rests on two central columns of the humanities: the history of ideas and discourse analysis.
  • Linguistics and Applied Linguistics: This field focuses on the description and analysis of the English language in the light of current linguistic theories and teaching approaches.
