Best Masters in Literature in Czech Republic 2017. The structure, content and extent of the Follow-up Master's degree “English Language and Literature” follows on directly from the English-language version of the three-year Bachelor's degree “English Language and Literature.” The Follow-up Master's degree “English Language and Literature” is a philological programme, which requires candidates to possess an advanced level of language competence (CEFR level C1 – “proficient user”), a very good knowledge of the grammatical and lexical systems of modern English, an awareness of the characteristic features of functional styles, a basic awareness of the literature of English-speaking countries, and a general knowledge of these countries' culture and history. This knowledge and these skills are further developed and enhanced in the Follow-up Master's degree. In linguistics, students' knowledge of the modern English language is complemented by a knowledge of historical grammar and diachronic language change; there is an extensive focus on higher levels of language and features of linguistic communication (text linguistics, linguistic pragmatics, sociolinguistics); and there is also an emphasis on a contrastive approach (linguistic interference). In literature, students acquire a deeper knowledge primarily of modern British and American literature, while also broadening their horizons to encompass literary criticism. Graduate Profile and Career Opportunities: The aim of the degree is to ensure that graduates attain an expert level of philological knowledge and are experienced, independent users of the English language (CEFR level C2), with a solid knowledge of English linguistics and of the literatures and cultures of English-speaking countries; this knowledge and these skills can be applied by graduates in a wide range of professions requiring independent intellectual work and expertise in the above-mentioned areas. Graduates are highly competent users of the English language in both written and spoken forms, applying their language skills in formal and informal situations of various types. Graduates are able to independently and creatively apply their theoretical knowledge and practical skills in carrying out expert tasks, intellectual work and research; they are also able to systematically develop their skills and knowledge depending on practical requirements. Besides working professionally with language and texts of various types, graduates also possess a high degree of cultural erudition, which can be effectively applied in intercultural communication and international cooperation. Admission requirements The follow-on Master's degree programme is designed for graduates of three-year Bachelor's degrees. Candidates are expected to possess an excellent level of language competence (level C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) in all language skills (pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary, speaking and listening, reading comprehension, writing skills) and a sound knowledge of basic linguistic disciplines, the structure and systems of the English language, the development of British and American literature, as well as the life, culture and institutions of English-speaking countries. The admission requirements are based on the knowledge and skills required for the successful completion of the three-year Bachelor's degree. Suitability for admission is tested via the entrance examination. The entrance examination is in written form; it verifies candidates' language competence and Bachelor-level knowledge of English phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, lexicology, stylistics, and British/American literature. Numbers of points available for individual parts of the examination (total number of points for the examination = 100): test of specialist knowledge – linguistic part and literary part, each representing 35 points (total number of points in this part of the examination = 70) test of language competence – C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (30 points) The sole evaluation criterion for admission is the result of the written entrance examination. All candidates must take the entrance examination. [-]
