MA in English Studies

What is English?  Is it one specific language, spoken by a substantial part of the people inhabiting the globe in a variety of national, regional and local dialects, or is it, as has been suggested recently by the invention of the term Global English, a lingua franca, more like several different languages with a number of common denominators?

Similar questions could be asked with respect to literature(s) written in English and to the historical and cultural development of English-language nations and cultures. English Studies is a two-year full-time (see below) MA program which aims to train students to investigate and answer such questions by broadening their knowledge of the English-speaking world and its cultures as well as by developing their theoretical and methodological skills and communicative competences so as to be able to disseminate their knowledge to non-experts.

Course structure

English can be read as a main subject or as an option.

If you have a BA in English, you can choose to continue to the MA degree in English or you can choose a particular master’s degree.
