Master Advanced Anglophone Studies

From Winter 2022/23 onwards, our master's program will be called Master of North American Studies, and we will focus on the United States and Canada in a transnational context. Anglophone literatures and cultures will still be at the core of our concern. Students with a background in American or British Studies, or with a Bachelor of English are welcome to apply.

Students who are already enrolled in the Advanced Anglophone Studies program can transfer to the North American Studies program or indicate that they want to remain a student of Advanced Anglophone Studies. All students will each receive an email concerning this procedure in late June or early July.

Advanced Anglophone Studies as a consecutive degree program is a joint venture of the British and the American Studies divisions in the English Seminar and is aimed at students with degrees in American Studies, British Studies, and other fields of literary or cultural studies. The program offers a broad variety of courses in American and British Studies, with a strong focus on New English Literatures, postcolonial and diaspora studies, gender studies, and the literatures of globalization. In addition, students are invited to work on media history and media theory, and to acquaint themselves with new trends in television studies, popular culture studies, and the studies of digital cultures.
