Course content

This MA focuses on the description and explanation of the English language, including its structure, functions and social contexts of use. English language here refers to the study of English as an academic subject, not the practice of English.

It is designed to appeal to a wide audience (including U.K. teachers of the English Language A level). Each of the six modules, spread over two years, begins with a Saturday face-to-face session at Lancaster University and is completed in distance mode. Assessment is via coursework. The final year involves a dissertation supported by an individual supervisor.
