The Master’s programme in English Studies helps you develop your expertise in areas that are often separated in other programmes: English language and linguistics, literature in English, and the teaching of English. By working in a stimulating environment with accomplished researchers and teachers, you develop skills needed in your future career, such as skills in presentation, independent and group work and project management.

An MA in English Studies prepares you for a variety of jobs, and our graduates have been successful in finding employment. If combined with mandatory pedagogical studies, the Master’s degree in English Studies qualifies you to be a language teacher. Alternatively, you can find employment in media or publishing, business, or international organisations where language skills are required. English is used globally as the language of science, culture, business and tourism, and experts in English are required in all of these fields.

During your Master’s studies, you can

  • Develop your expertise in linguistic or literary studies
  • Strengthen your understanding of theoretical approaches and research methods within English Studies
  • Strengthen your language skills, academic writing skills and presentation skills
  • Participate in research projects
  • Participate in the Master’s thesis seminar, during which you write your thesis
  • Study abroad as an exchange student (if you have not done so already).

The scope of the Master’s degree is 120 credits (ECTS). The degree contains the following studies:

  • Advanced studies in the discipline (60–120 credits) and
  • If needed, you can take other courses to achieve the minimum credit requirement for the degree (a total of 120 credits).

You can choose between three specialisations: linguistics, literary studies and applied linguistics.

Career prospects

English Studies prepares you for different types of careers in business and culture, as well as in public administration and education:

  • With careful selection of supporting studies, you can find employment in government, the media, libraries and other cultural institutions, national and international organisations, or tourism. If you complete 60 credits of pedagogical studies in conjunction with English studies, you will be qualified to teach English in Finnish schools as well as in adult education in Finland.
  • After successfully completing your Master’s degree, you can also apply to continue your studies as a postgraduate student and later build a career as a university researcher or teacher.
