The MA programme in English Studies is designed to provide students with interpretive skills, academic research tools, and a critical perspective in the fields of English Studies. Students are introduced to basic theoretical fields, such as the history and theory of literature, theories of language, the social uses of language, gender studies and the multimediality of culture. An overview of academic research tools in the information society and the digital humanities is presented during the course of studies, and students participate in interactive seminars, research practice and thesis writing consultations.
Rigorous coursework develops abilities of understanding the human subject in the linguistic, historical and ideological complexities of society. During the course of the programme, there is a focus on developing skills of academic research, critical thinking, argumentative academic writing, and analytical skills. Graduates of the Faculty usually pursue careers in cultural and public administration, tourism, media and international business. There is also an opportunity to continue studies in PhD programmes.
Specialisation options: (after the comprehensive general courses of the first semester) Applied Linguistics, Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies, or Gender Studies.
