Enrolling for a masters degree in English offers students an opportunity to improve their language, both spoken and written. This applies to students who have English as their first language or second language. Taking up a masters program in English is advantageous for potential students for more reasons than one; the resources available for use in the learning process are in plenty. The number of English speaking people is large and therefore, finding practical solutions to apply your newly acquired skills is easy. However, the degree can be as versatile as one can imagine; the career opportunities available to students enrolling in the program are plenty.
A masters program in English does not require one to have a bachelor degree in English before enrolling. Though, it is much easier for students who already have a bachelors program and look to further their studies. Taking up this program is beneficial as it improves the analytical skills of the student, sharpens their writing skills, and also helps in the broadening of their literary knowledge. The major fields in which a student can specialize in include: Old English, Theory and practice in rhetoric, non-fiction writing, novel writing, English world literature and the history of English language.
The possible careers available for a graduate of a masters degree in the English language include: Teaching, writing, journalism, media, linguistics, and more. Given the number of English speaking countries in the world, the degree program is definitely very marketable throughout the world.

The subject of English is one of the most wide-ranging subjects of study offered at the university. Although the focus is on literature, the nature of English literature exposes students to thinking in other realms of history, politics, philosophy and more.
This makes the UK, with its world-renown education system, one of the best places in the world to study such a multi-disciplinary subject. Another thrill for English literature students, specific to the UK, is the knowledge that many of the authors studied in class were not only from the UK but often still have remnants around the country for students to visit, such as the houses of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy, Wordsworth and so many more....

With English being the global language it is, the provision of quality training for professional development becomes a must.
With English being the global language it is, the provision of quality training for professional development becomes a must. In response to the growing demand in Europe and Latin America, as well as in the rest of the world, for improvement in the quality and effectiveness of English language teaching in both the public and the private sector, a programme in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) has been developed. It is specifically designed for distance learning and has been developed in collaboration with La Fundación Universitaria Iberoamericana (FUNIBER).
The programme aims to help practicing teachers, or those wishing to become teachers, address in an informed and principled way the issues and professional needs that relate to their own working environment. The type of training is thus developed to encourage the learner’s autonomy without losing sight of elements of constant but flexible interaction, tailored to the specific needs of teachers in professional development....

The programme is well suited for students who are interested in studying how English is acquired in first and second language settings, as well as how the English language is affected by multilingual situations. In individual speakers, multilingual situations may cause one language to influence another, in particular in the acquisition process, and may ultimately also result in language attrition due to the lack of exposure and use of one of the languages. In societies, multilingualism and language contact may result in the development of new varieties of the language. Students admitted to the programme will be closely integrated into the research group in Language Acquisition, Variation and Attrition (LAVA: http://site.uit.no/lava/), which is an active and productive research group working on various aspects of multilingualism and multilingual language acquisition. The students will get the opportunity to carry out hands-on research with the members of the group. The programme provides a good foundation for work related to multilingualism in both the private and the public sector and is well suited for students who want to pursue a career within research....
