FULL TIME and PART TIME English MA programme
STUDY ENGLISH PHILOLOGY
Our MA graduate programme offers the opportunity to grow and interact in a challenging academic environment. Studying English Philology at MA level, apart from developing practical language skills at a high C2 proficiency level of CEFR for languages, encompasses deepening students’ knowledge of selected fields of philological studies. The students may choose to follow one of offered academic paths and pursue their MA thesis in: Literary studies/Cultural studies or Linguistics/Translation studies.
The classes on full time studies are held from Monday through Friday, while the classes on part time studies are planned for every Saturday and selected Sundays. All lecturers are available to students during their office hours to discuss academic issues relating to their courses.
MA studies finish with an MA defense and an MA degree. Graduate studies also prepare candidates for doctoral studies in a similar field.
