A master’s degree program is intended for students that have already completed their undergraduate studies but still wish to continue developing academic skills. These programs typically require one or two more years of full-time study. To graduate, students usually must complete a final project that demonstrates competency with course material.

So what is a Master in English Studies? It is a degree program that furthers the understanding of the English language and its impact. Topics of study often include in-depth analysis of the origins and etymology of the language as well as its global impact. Students may learn about dominant Western cultures that have adopted English and the way it has influenced modern business, politics, law and the arts. Much of the coursework may include critical reading and writing exercises.

While performing research, students develop their analytical and critical thinking skills. They are taught to consider sources of information and evaluate nuances of meaning and authenticity. Students can become much better writers and improve their public speaking skills as they develop techniques for informing and persuading audiences.

Tuition costs depend on the institution. Those interested should contact the admissions departments of universities under consideration. Students are also encouraged to budget for travel and living expenses while attending college.

After finishing one of these programs, graduates can enter the workforce prepared for jobs that require clear communication. Many become educators and have options at different levels of public and private education. Graduates may write professionally as contributors in recurring publications or as freelance journalists. Some even focus on creating their own pieces of literature. Advertising firms may also hire these professionals to work in marketing.

To find the right program, it is important to consider as many options as possible. You may benefit from online colleges that are flexible to overcome geographic limitations. These programs often provide an excellent value. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
