Overview

The Literatures in English  PhD program from Masaryk University students can specialize in one of the four major Anglophone areas – British and Irish literature, North American literature, Australian and New Zealand literature, or other literatures in English – or they can do a comparative study in two or more of these areas. Methodological approaches may include national/transnational, ethnicity, gender, queer, postcolonial, regional, and other aspects shaping literary studies. The programme is designed to encourage students to expand their literary-critical focus while developing their teaching, networking, and professional skills.

The main objectives of the Literatures in English programme at Masaryk University are: 1) to expand rigorous research and methodological skills in literary-critical and critical-theoretical work; 2) to obtain detailed knowledge of the critical scholarship in the selected area of Anglophone literatures in Czech and international contexts; and 3) to acquire personal experience with and professional growth within Czech and international academic environments.

Career opportunities:

The program endeavours to reflect the latest developments in the field of Anglophone literary studies. This allows the graduates of the program to enter the job market not only in academia but also in journalism, diplomacy, various national and transnational NGOs, public service, and the commercial sector.
