MA Course in English Literature - Features of the Curriculum

The English Literature course consists of three areas: British Literature, American Literature, and English linguistics. These three areas allow students to develop a broader understanding of British and American culture.

The British and American Literature courses include reading, literary criticism, the translation of English novels, and poetry.

The English Linguistics course considers the English language in terms of meaning and form, the structure of words and sentences and discourse analysis.

The major research component of the Masterfs course is the writing of a thesis. Support is given to all students through a tutorial system which helps the students with their research and the writing of their theses. Graduate students have the opportunity to present their research at the annual English Linguistic and Literary Society conference and to have their research published in the university journal. The society provides support for those students who present their research outside the university.
