Modules

The Inter-university Master in Advanced English Studies and its Applications (iMAES) allows you to organise your studies along two specialist pathways of your choice:

  • English Language and Linguistics: students opting for this pathway complete 48 credits offering advanced specialisation in language and linguistics, both theoretical and applied, and 12 credits (four courses) in the field of Anglophone literatures and cultures.
  • Anglophone Literatures and Cultures: students opting for this pathway complete 48 credits offering advanced specialisation in literature and culture, and 12 credits (four courses) in English language and linguistics.

Each course (3 ECTS) combines distance learning with 14 hours of classroom instruction. In addition, you will have to complete the MA thesis (12 ECTS) and the Practicum unit (6 ECTS); the latter affords students a unique opportunity to carry out external practical work in companies and institutions, as a means of acquiring professional skills and experience.

Classes are held at each of the three universities participating in the Degree, so that students can choose the location and schedule that best suit their needs and interests. All courses are taught entirely in English.
