English at Master's level

If you are interested in pursuing a Master’s degree in English, we have a recommended study path but not a special programme you can apply to. This means that you have to apply for courses prior to every new semester. When planning your coursework, please remember that not all Master’s-level courses are offered every semester.

You need a Bachelor’s degree in English, including a degree project corresponding to 15 credits, to be eligible for studies at the Master’s level.

The illustration below shows how you can plan your coursework to obtain a Master’s degree (60 or 120 credits) in English with a specialisation in linguistics or literature. A Master’s degree makes you eligible for third-cycle (doctoral/licentiate) studies.

You can always meet with the Study and Career Counsellor to discuss what courses may be appropriate to take based on your interests and plans for the future.
