About

This MA combines theoretical and ideological dimensions with practical applications.

Overview

This MA course builds on the international reputation of the School of English at Nottingham as one of the foremost centres for English language research in the world. The school’s modern English language programme provides a broad course of study in language and linguistics.

The principle of language study established at Nottingham combines theoretical and ideological dimensions with practical applications; we aim to be rigorous and principled while offering an approach to language study that is fundamentally humane.

The MA has intakes in September and February.As well as completing this course at a pace that suits you and your other commitments, you have the flexibility to study towards a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits), Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) or an MA (180 credits, including dissertation). Please note that if you wish to study for a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma you still need to apply for the full MA; you would then elect to leave the course with the alternative award (in Modern English Language) once studying.
