Are you interested in studying English, learning how to acquire and use it in a multilingual environment, discover its literatures from a variety of periods, historic moments and geographic places, while at the same time understanding the dynamics of cultural transmission in terms of gender or relations of power?

The Master's Degree in Advanced English Studies will provide you with the theoretical and methodological tools necessary to gain extensive knowledge in a diversity of study areas. You will benefit from a multidisciplinary and 100% in English programme set in an international environment. Year after year, a large number of local and international students from around the world come together to study at one of the best universities in Spain. 

The master's degree offers two specialisations:
