Master’s Degree in English Applied Linguistics

Master’s Degree in English Applied Linguistics
  • The main objective is to train linguists specialized in the English language who are equally at home in scientific and professional contexts and fully knowledgeable in the implementation of the methods and techniques pertaining to the realm of linguistics. The Master in Linguistics applied to English will be proficient in research activities and an expert analyst prepared for the intercultural communicative and educational challenges in society today. 

    This Master’s Programme prepares students for exercising the profession of linguist in tasks involving the design and analysis of intercultural communication in the English language, and aspects relating to teaching English in different educational contexts.

    Likewise, this degree is a pre-requisite for those intending to conduct a Doctoral Thesis, and necessary for embarking on a university career in teaching and research.

    Admission requirements

    The envisaged student profile for admission is that of graduates in a discipline related to this Master’s Programme, such as Bachelor’s Degree in English Philology, Degree in English Studies, Degree in Modern Languages, Culture and Communication, Degree in Translation and Interpreting, or other degrees including languages, such as Tourism.

    The Master’s Degree in English Applied Linguistics may also be an attractive option for graduates with a specialization in languages from the Master’s Degree in Teacher Training for Lower and Upper Secondary Education, and is open to students with other degrees that are not directly related. 

    Nevertheless, as this programme is focused on the study of English, and taught entirely in this language, proficiency in English is considered an essential requirement to reach the course objectives. Applicants must accredit having achieved the B2 level in English according to the European Common Framework of Reference for Languages, by submitting a diploma such as the Advanced Certificate issued by the Spanish Official School of Languages (Certificado Superior de Aptitud de la Escuela Oficial de Idiomas), or by demonstrating a sufficient command of English in the course of an interview.

    Students whose previous studies have little in common with this Master’s Programme will be asked to take a complementary course of training.
