MA studies are intended for candidates who have successfully completed their undergraduate studies having attained a Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent. Students choose their Master’s  Seminars according to their personal interests and preferences. The choice of a seminar determines course modules, including specialization courses.

The Institute presents students with a variety of MA Seminars taught by distinguished professors. The concept of building one’s study and research experience around a seminar in which teachers collaborate with students is as innovative and unique as our highly personalized course system. It encourages students to build their own study program under the guidance of a qualified thesis advisor. This study program gives students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in one of the three main fields: Linguistics, British and American Literature and British and American Culture and also promotes cross-discipline research. All obligatory and optional courses associated with a student’s major are taught in English. In addition, the Institute offers courses that incorporate the CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) method of teaching.
