¿Qué aprenderé?

The Master of Arts in the field of English Studies (MA) offers candidates with a good grounding in English Studies the opportunity to participate in an innovative programme that explores latest developments in literary, cultural and linguistic theory. The curriculum has a cross-cultural focus designed to take advantage of Hong Kong's historical, geographical and political position. Each course considers different theories, languages and literatures of cross-cultural exchange, especially with respect to East-West and post-colonial thinking. The programme includes courses in Cross-cultural Theory, Language and Communication, Global Fictions, Post-Colonial Representations, Travel Writing and Culture, World Modernism, The Politics of English, Cultural Semiotics, New Media and Discourse and Global Englishes.

The main prerequisite for this programme is a solid background at UG level in writing critical essays on language and literature. Much of the theory will be new and the programme will begin at the beginning and assume no prior knowledge of it. However, reading in some of the theories used in the programme, such as theories of language and communication, semiotic theories, Orientalism, post-colonial theory, theories of globalisation and cross-cultural theory, is recommended as preparation.

Please note that our MA is not an English as a Second Language or an English teaching programme. Although many of our students are English teachers or teachers-to-be, our focus is purely on literature and language as fields of critical enquiry, and the programme does not focus on pedagogical methods or improving language skills. Our programme assumes that you already have a strong foundation in reading and writing in English.

In addition to regular classes, candidates will be required to complete a capstone course in their final semester that will culminate in a final creative project to be presented at a conference to the academic and wider community.
