The web-based MA Modern English Language offers you the opportunity to follow a wide range of modules from across the expertise of the language section of the School of English.
Therefore, this course is ideal if you do not want to specialise in your language study or if you want the flexibility of building your own programme.
The MA has intakes in September and February.
The MA courses by web-based distance learning build on the international reputation of the School of English at Nottingham as one of the foremost centres for English Language research in the world. We are ranked 7th for English in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015, in the world top 50 for English Literature, Language and Linguistics (QS World University Rankings 2014) and 9th in the UK for 'research power' (REF 2014).. The course is taught using a course tool software called Moodle. It is also supported by extensive online resources, course materials and teaching. The programme offers an excellent route towards pursuing a PhD. The MA Modern English Language is also available as a taught full- or part-time course within the University. As well as completing this course at a pace that suits you and your other commitments, you have the flexibility to study towards a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits), Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) or an MA (180 credits, including dissertation). Please note that if you wish to study for a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma you still need to apply for the full MA; you would then elect to leave the course with the alternative award once studying.
