Message 2: New Graduate Programme in English Language/Literature

Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2003 05:42:29 -0500 (EST)
From: Olga Fischer <O.C.M.Fischeruva.nl>
Subject: New Graduate Programme in English Language/Literature

The University of Amsterdam offers a new one-year MA in English
Language and/or English Literature. The linguistic program of this MA
may be combined with courses from the one-year MA in General
Linguistics, also offered by the University of Amsterdam. Both
programmes are taught in English or, in the case of language-specific
courses, in the target language.

Since the University of Amsterdam is interested in attracting talented
students, the tuition rates are competitive.

Courses in the MA in English Language/Literature generally explore the
space beyond formal and disciplinary boundaries, and the overlap not
only between various methodologies, theories, historical periods and
social spaces but also between language and literature. Students may
opt for a purely linguistic, a purely literary or a combined English
MA. The literary studies programme offers courses and tutorials in all
the major periods, from medieval to postmodern and contemporary;
courses in British, American and Postcolonial literature; and courses
with a variety of theoretical orientations. The most powerful common
element is probably an interest in cultural studies. The courses and
tutorials on offer in the programme in linguistics provide insight
into central linguistic issues from a historical perspective as well
as a theoretical one, illustrating both formal and functional
approaches to language. Other courses are concerned with language use
in different situations and different genres.

The MA in General Linguistics with which the program may be combined,
also offers a wide range of specializations, and is aimed at students
with a BA in Linguistics or an equivalent programme, involving at
least three years of full-time study at university level. The
programme lasts one year.
