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.
INSIGHT INTO CULTURES AND INDUSTRIES
In the Master’s 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, storytelling and adaptation, and learn how creativity can be commercialised. 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 the both public, private, and non-profit sectors.
