Master of Arts in English Studies (MAES)
Full-time 2018-19/ Part-time 2018-2020

Our taught Master's programme offers a unique opportunity to pursue in-depth studies in English Linguistics and Literature, combined with capstone courses for students to research and develop their own areas of interest. The new, exciting capstone experience will culminate in a research paper and a creative project to be presented at a conference for the academic and wider community.

Students will be introduced to a wide range of domains in English Linguistics and Literature, taught by leading specialists in the field. Along with introductory courses that provide foundational knowledge, Linguistics courses include Global Englishes, Cultural Semiotics, Politics of English. Literary courses include Travel Writing and Culture, World Modernism and Global Fictions.

The programme has a cross-cultural focus on English Language and Literature. Taking advantage of Hong Kong's historical, geographical and political background, our courses consider language and literature in relation to Hong Kong's position in the global world.

Programme Structure

Our programme is available in both full-time and part-time modes. The full-time programme is an intensive one-year course. Full-time students will have the option of specialising in either the Linguistics or Literature stream. The part-time programme is offered over the course of two years. The programme consists of two introductory courses, four seminar courses, and a capstone experience in the form of a final research project and a conference paper to be presented at a conference.
