About

Our selective two-year Master programme in English Literatures and Cultures at the University of Tübingen offers comprehensive training in the methods and theories of literary and cultural studies in order to enable students to engage with the literatures, cultures, histories and societies of the Anglophone world.

Overview

The wide variety of courses in the programme encompass cultural developments from the early modern to the ‘postmodern’ periods. The Master programme in English Literatures and Cultures at the University of Tübingen aims to explore the relationship between literary texts and other types of text and media, thus creating a productive link between literary and cultural studies. The ability to critically analyse and reflect on texts of any kind constitutes the core principle underlying teaching and learning in this area.

The programme

This area of study delves into the rich tradition of English literature in Great Britain, as well as the newer literatures that have emerged in English across the globe. Of particular interest is the role literature has played across a range of cultural contexts throughout history, both in terms of its functions and achievements.

Literature is therefore viewed as an integral part of the culture of the modern era, in the widest sense of the phrase – encompassing cultural developments from the Middle Ages to the ‘postmodern’ era. More recent developments in the field, built on the concept of ‘literary studies as a form of media studies and cultural studies‘, form the basis for exploring the relationship between literary texts and other types of text and media, thus creating a productive link between literary and cultural studies. The ability to critically analyze and reflect on texts of any kind constitutes the core principle underlying teaching and learning in this area.

Programme Structure

The four core modules are:

  • Literary and Cultural Theory
  • Literature and Culture
  • Literary History
  • Culture and the Media
These core modules are supplemented by:
  • An Interdisciplinary Profile enabling students to attend courses at other departments or faculties, thereby creating a unique academic profile
  • Professional Experience via internships, teaching tutorials, becoming involved in editorial projects etc.
  • Research I and II including a colloquium in which students will present their M.A. thesis projects and independent studies
  • Some components in the supplementary curriculum can be replaced by three Digital Humanities modules which will yield an additional certificate of qualification
