Why study the MA in English Literature & Linguistics at Granada University?

There is an increasing domestic and international demand for educators at all levels in the different areas of English-related studies.

Our MA program is committed to the education and training of versatile professionals who are knowledgeable in the different skills required for a career not just in the fields of education, but also in other profiles that call for an advanced level in the use of English and its cultural background for specific purposes.

Our MA program emphasizes and encourages autonomous learning and other independent learning strategies that can empower our students to adapt to the changing demands of the labor market. The professional side of our MA program is reinforced by the module in bilingual education teaching practice. Students who take this modules end up with a significant amount of certified professional practice.

The elaboration of an MA thesis gives students the opportunity to test and develop the research potential they have acquired with the seminars, and it may also lead to the elaboration of a PhD dissertation in our doctoral program.

 

 

 

REASON 4: An international team of lecturers, professors, and fellow students.

One of the most interesting aspects of our MA is that it features an international team of first-rate academics in their respective fields, which includes both local faculty and visiting professors from the United States and Europe, as well as from other Spanish universities. This, coupled with the fact that our students come from a wide range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds, gives our program a decidedly international character, which adds a multicultural personal experience to its more formally academic aspects. Our MA gives students the opportunity to get in touch with the latest trends in a variety of fields, and offers the possibility of becoming part of a dynamic group of international students with whom they can establish lasting friendships and professional contacts.

 

REASON 5: Studying and living in Granada.
