Program description

MA in English Language and Literature (ELIT)

This postgraduate program offers advanced language, critical thinking skills and the opportunity to start a career in academia. The program enables students to review in detail English literature and its progression in a sequential way, from the old English period to the present, with a focus on American Literature and the Literature of various ethnic groups writing in English. This will serve as a valuable background as they integrate the study of literature with social, cultural, political, historical, economic, and religious knowledge and begin to comprehend the complex relationship between the construction of literature and the globalized world of the 21st century. Then, while studying in the graduate program in English literature, students also conduct a far-reaching research and analysis to build up gradually their critical thinking skills, understanding and academic production. When they finish the program, they could analyze independently any literary text and formulate their own conclusion. The postgraduate study program, besides giving knowledge about English language and literature, also provides them with the opportunity to develop their artistic and creative skills and become independent literary critics in thinking and interpretation.
