MA in English Studies

 

The goal of the MA in English Studies is the training of experts who, besides a full mastery of the English language, possess an extensive and in-depth knowledge of the language, culture and history of English-speaking countries.

 

Rather than mere passive receivers of information, students graduating from this MA programme will be specialists fully capable of undertaking independent and original investigations in a wide range of topics: as highly educated experts, they will become players in the social and cultural field occupying positions where their views will in fact influence a number of people; it is, therefore, indispensible that they be capable of applying and developing the skills acquired here in areas as diverse as international relations, tourism, the press and the media, business, publishing, municipal and national administration, the political and diplomatic spheres (several of our ex-students found jobs in the administrative centres of the EU), in cultural life (taken in its broadest sense) and, of course, in the academic field....
