Master Study Programmes in English Literature:


The prerequisite for direct admission to Master Major and First Minor programmes is a Bachelor's degree in English Studies with at least 60 ECTS. The prerequisite for direct admission to Master Second Minor programmes is a Bachelor's degree in English Studies with at least 30 ECTS. Please consult the pages of the individual study programmes for details regarding the minimum requirements in English linguistics and/or literature.

For further details about the study programmes and the contents of individual modules consult the Study Guide for Bachelor and Master Students of English.

* Please note that it is possible to take two majors at Master level, in which case the thesis is written in only one of the subjects. This subject is completed at 75 ECTS, and the second major, where no thesis is written, is completed at 45 ECTS. There is otherwise no difference between these two major options, and hence no separate Study Regulation for the 45 ECTS option.
