MA in American Studies

The MA program in American Studies offers a comprehensive survey of the field and a specialization in American literature and literary studies. Students acquaint themselves with the specific fields and methodologies in American Studies, American history, politics, culture and literature, and will learn how to pursue their individual research therein. They will be equipped to understand, interpret and evaluate all things American in their local and global contexts, and will acquire related skills needed in the labour market, most notably in the cultural and creative industries.

The American Studies MA program boasts a vibrant international student body, where a respectful exchange of ideas is always facilitated.

PhD in British, Irish, and American Literatures in English

The Program in British, Irish and American Literatures in English comprises two phases, the first of which consists of three modules: (1) core curriculum courses in the fields of literary theory, cultural studies and literary history stretching over the first three semesters; (2) teaching, tutoring, mentoring and other department-related activities (second and third semesters); individual research for the thesis (continuous) and (3) revision for the complex exam (fourth semester). Having earned the required credits and passed the complex exam, students enter the second phase, wherein they are required to finish their theses with the help of their supervisors, and submit it in two years after their complex exam.

The program is thus divided into two years of course-work and two years of research and writing, with tutors helping candidates all along on their way towards receiving their PhDs. As the faculty have different areas of expertise, we support individual research with a variety of focus in the fields of British, Irish and American literatures in English. In order to find out about what we teach and do research in, please check our webpage at the University of Pécs.
