Students can either specialize in one of the four major Anglophone areas British and Irish literature, North American literature, Australian and New Zealand literature, and other literatures in English or they can do a comparative study in two or more of these areas.
Methodological approaches may include national/transnational, ethnic, gender, queer, postcolonial, regional and other aspects shaping literary studies. The program is designed to encourage students to expand their literary-critical focus while also developing their teaching skills, networking and professionalism.
The program endeavours to reflect the latest developments in the field of Anglophone literary studies as well as a range of soft skills. This allows PhD candidates to enter the job market not only in academia but also in journalism, diplomacy, various national and transnational NGOs as well as in public service and commercial sector.
