Study programme descriptionThe programme develops competencies of conducting independent research in the selected sub-branch of philology on the basis of the acquired knowledge and skills. The programme objectives are to ensure that students broaden and systematize the acquired knowledge about the content, methodology, major theories and current research in literature, general and applied linguistics, develop awareness of implementing theories in practice, acquire research work skills, foster subject-specific competencies and apply them in research and professional practice.

Students develop the ability to formulate and do a summative analysis of the developmental tendencies in linguistics, literary studies, language acquisition as well as the ability to state the research problems and propose approaches to solving problems.

Upon successful completion of the programme, Master’s degree holders are able to conduct independent research on issues related to general linguistics, applied linguistics and literature, to continue studies at PhD programme as well as to have a number of job opportunities at institutions of secondary and higher education, public administration agencies, non-governmental organisations and other institutions.
