Masters in English Literature in Europe 2017. The subject of English is one of the most wide-ranging subjects of study offered at 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. At the undergraduate level, students can expect an overview of English literature, ranging from Medieval to twenty-first century. Students will have the opportunity to choose optional modules (classes) alongside the required core modules, which will enable them to focus more on certain areas of interest, such as Victorian literature, creative writing, American literature, Gothic literature, children’s literature, Shakespeare, and many more. In England and Wales the degree will consist of three years of study; in Scotland the degree is four years. In the former, students can expect to take a heaver load of core classes the first year, gradually adding more optional modules as the years progress and they learn their own areas of greatest interest. Students will usually write a dissertation in... [-]

To many, the United Kingdom is the birthplace of modern theatre and the mecca for anyone who wishes to study drama. With its rich history of Shakespeare, Marlowe, Stoppard, Coward and more, the UK is often seen as the place to not only visit the theatre, but also to study and explore as a student. The UK’s emphasis on and continued support for the theatre makes it an ideal place for aspiring drama and theatre students to pursue their studies, at both the undergrad and postgrad level. Undergrad students can expect to be plunged right into the heart of theatre from day one. As UK undergrad degrees are far more focused and specialized, most students will experience acting on a regular basis and be given far more responsibility and roles as an undergrad than they would have at a US institution. In terms of technical and behind-the-scenes theatre, students will be given hands-on training much faster than they would as an undergrad in the states. Many UG Drama or Theatre courses offer an array of specialties such as acting, directing, or even studying plays themselves from an English degree. Two of our partner universities, the University of Leeds and Oxford Brookes University, offer sandwich courses which adds an additional year of study involving full-time work placement right in the theatre industry, often with playhouses or studios. We currently have 16 partner universities that offer Drama and Theatre courses at the post-grad or MA level of study: - Aberystwyth University -... [-]

Masters in English Literature in Europe 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...
