Why study

The Master prepares students for the demanding standards of the international job market and offers advanced training in the core subject areas of English language and linguistics and Anglo-American literature and culture. It also gives students the opportunity to gain practical experience in both conducting and applying linguistics and literary research.

There is also a practicum module which affords students a unique opportunity to work with outside organisations with which the organising universities have established partnership arrangements.

The Master also allows students to begin work on a PhD, in that it provides the preparatory coursework required for writing a PhD dissertation. It constitutes the pre-requisite coursework for the Inter-university PhD Programme in Advanced English Studies: Linguistics, Literature and Culture, also jointly organised by the Universities of Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña and Vigo.
