Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will understand and be able to critically apply in an essay different interdisciplinary approaches to English-language literatures in their respective historical periods with particular emphasis on gender studies, identity politics, political discourse, postcolonial studies, comparative literature, and translation studies. They will be familiar with and be able to apply different theoretical approaches and research principles in the fields of English linguistics as well as corpus linguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, philosophy of language, gender studies, film language, and bilingual education. Finally, graduates will know how to design a research project and to write critical essays with a clear, rigorous, and well-structured epistemological framework.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
