Two roads diverged in a yellow wood

A master’s degree in English Language and Literature gives you a choice between two tracks of study: either Linguistics and Applied Linguistics or Literary and Cultural Studies. Based on your choice, you will (besides a few compulsory subjects) create your own study plan, setting your own path of studies.

A wide variety of electives (taught exclusively in English, except translation subjects) allows you to customise your studies based on your chosen track but also personal focus and interest. Decode the language of law and criminals with forensic linguistics, examine film criticism in Canada, or explore the literary techniques of the world’s
most famous playwrights. The choice is yours.

A family of professionals

Linguistics from seasoned linguists, American television culture from Americans, Shakespeare from Brits. During your studies, you will be guided by experts in the field but your role will be more than to listen and learn.

Your voice is appreciated and will be heard by both your teachers and classmates, as the programme encourages critical thinking and the presentation of individual ideas.

Starting to study at the Department of English and American Studies at Masaryk’s Faculty of Arts is like a warm hug. There are plenty of extracurricular activities you can pick from and since the department is not enormous, you will get to know everyone very quickly – something you will appreciate not only when meeting the university but also Brno, the 6th most popular student city in the world.


Graduate profile: You got it all

There are 7,000 languages in the world but you know that English is the one we all need to master. It is the language of economics, culture, art, politics… well, the language this world speaks with. Mastering it opens the door to that world.

Earning a master’s degree in English at Masaryk means that you are really good with words. It also means that you know a lot about major English-speaking cultures: their values, behaviour, ways of thinking, everything.

All of that makes your possibilities nearly limitless, giving you a solid ground to become an editor, a journalist, a (technical) writer, a copywriter or content specialist, an English teacher, or a communications expert.

And if you still want to know more or do your own research in English, Masaryk University is here with vacancies in doctoral studies.

Admission

Master’s degree in English Language and Literature at Masaryk has no entrance exams as such. What you need to do is to provide the admission office with a number of documents, including proof of your prior bachelor-level education in a related field (liberal arts, humanities, social studies, etc.), two letters of recommendation, your statement of purpose, and some more. You also need to demonstrate proficiency in English (C1).

And don’t worry, you don’t need to come to Brno for your admission procedure. The Czech Republic will be waiting for you to start your new adventure after admission.

Medieval Latin Language and Literature
Are you interested in the Middle Ages? Do you want to understand how society worked, what people read, how they passed on news, what they did for fun or how they healed? You can learn about this primarily from texts that were overwhelmingly written in Latin in the Middle Ages. In this study programme, we will not only teach you the language of these written sources, i.e. medieval Latin, but also the secrets of interpreting the various types of surviving sources.
