Deepen and accentuate your knowledge in literary and cultural studies after your Bachelor’s degree, transfer theories and methods to compelling classics and contemporary texts, explore and discuss medial characteristics, cultural contexts and transcultural dimensions of literary text production, and as you do to develop and sharpen your own scientific profile: That’s what the Master’s course Anglophone Literatures, Cultures and Media has to offer.
The three major fields Literature and Media Culture, Literature and Cultural History, and Transcultural Anglophone Studies are dedicated to historical, political, philosophical and artistic developments in Anglophone literature and cultures – with an eye for detail as well as the big picture. The two years Master’s course ALCM, taught entirely in English, focuses on literary, cultural and media studies and specialises in literary studies in its historical context, cultural communication, cultural memory, intermediate and key concepts in media studies and other central themes in Anglophone literatures and cultures in close contact with the newest research.
The studies help you to learn the ability of abstraction, articulateness, logical and deductive reasoning and discussion skills in several languages as well as the handling of media and presentation methods and of course enthusiasm for the subject.
Dedicated and curious students also benefit from the extensive range of guest lectures, conferences and workshops and the committed environment at Goethe University and can participate and actively shape university life.
