English Linguistics and Literary Studies

Master of Linguistics and Literary Studies: English

Combine an in-depth study of the English language and Anglophone literature in a one-year Master programme

Taught in English by specialists in the field, we offer a range of courses to choose from in the fields of both linguistics and literary studies. There is only one requirement: you must take at least one linguistics course and one literature course.

  • Literature topics include British women writers, the American historical novel after 1950, representations of New York in 20th century literature, the construction of age, and the work of James Joyce and Samuel Beckett.
  • Linguistics courses focus on the use of English in different contexts, how it varies across time and space, and the changes this tends to trigger.
