Students will choose from a range of modules / courses at advanced level in English literature or in English linguistics which are offered each term. The degree project should also be in the chosen specialisation (linguistics OR literature) and have relevance to the teaching profession.

  • The courses aim at further developing the students’ understanding of literary / linguistic concepts, analyses and methodology within the chosen field of linguistics or literature, as well as their ability to apply these on relevant authentic material. Each module will have a series of seminars.
  • The purpose of the degree project is to give the students the opportunity to independently identify and formulate a research question within a chosen field of study in linguistics or literature and to seek, collect, evaluate and interpret relevant information in relation to this research question and present this in a research paper. Students will attend some seminars related to the degree project.
