Intercultural Anglophone Studies (MAIAS) is an innovative, research-oriented master’s programme in English and American Studies. It enables in-depth and theoretically informed study of the literatures and cultures of the English-speaking world, and of linguistic phenomena of English in its varieties. A wide range of forms of cultural expression such as literature, film, theatre, music, and popular culture are addressed. This degree programme promotes the analysis of complex issues in culture, literature and language – including inter- and transcultural issues – from various perspectives.

Areas of Emphasis

In Anglophone Literary Studies, the curriculum has the following research-based priorities: British, American and African literature and culture; postcolonial and diaspora studies; ecocriticism; gender studies; literature and media. Research-based studies in English Linguistics, in turn, extend to the following main areas: language, cognition and culture; varieties of English in their cultural setting; corpus linguistics.

Student Exchange & Dual Degree Programmes

The programme offers several innovative dual degree options with leading institutions in their respective countries: with Shanghai International Studies University (PR China), with Fu Jen Catholic University (Taiwan), with the University of Chester (UK), and, for the field of linguistics, with Moscow City Pedagogical University. There are also opportunities to study for one semester at George Washington University (USA).

Fields of Employment

As the MAIAS programme is geared toward advanced competences and skills, students are well-prepared for careers and positions in the academic world, in business, or the increasingly important forums of cross-cultural exchange. In particular, they find attractive career options in research and teaching, media and journalism, publishing, new media, international cultural institutions, cultural management, intercultural consulting, service and trade.

Academic Career

The programme is designed to enable students to work independently toward research goals, to present their results coherently and effectively, and to critically evaluate scholarly contributions from other authors. After the successful completion of the master’s degree, students have the option to pursue a doctorate, for example, within the International doctoral programme "Cultural Encounters" or the International Graduate School of African Studies at the University of Bayreuth.
