English is the fastest-developing language in the world, growing at about one new word every two hours. It is the native language of 350 million people and the second language of many more. It is the language of
globalisation, and organisations worldwide are increasingly agreeing on English as their official business language. As the importance and prevalence of English continue to rise, it is more and more necessary for climbing up the career ladder. Students who enrol in the MA in English programme have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the language, culture, history and society of the English-speaking world.

Programme structure

• Students work within the three main sub-disciplines of English – literature and history, language, and society and culture;
• Students study a unique combination of area studies, language and culture, and the creative economy and cultural industries;
• Students can do an internship with a company or organisation, or spend a semester studying abroad.

Career opportunities

The following are the five most common jobs for English graduates:

Upper secondary school teacher. Many English graduates teach at upper secondary school, and as English as a subject was strengthened with the reform of upper secondary school education, the future looks bright if this is what you dream of doing.

Communication and IT. With the excellent language and communication skills acquired during the degree programme, English graduates are qualified to work in the communication and IT industries as communication advisors, web editors or text writers, etc.

Administration and organisation. English is the working language in a growing number of workplaces, and many English graduates are therefore employed as consultants, heads of department or project managers.

Teaching and research. English graduates also teach at other institutions than upper secondary schools, for example at training colleges, universities, language schools as well as at folk high schools and within continuing education.

Translation and interpreting. The degree programme qualifies students for translation and interpreting work at, for example, international companies and organisations within the EU and the UN.
