MLitt in English Language in Britain & Beyond
School of English & Film Studies, University of Aberdeen

This new taught postgraduate degree is focussed on topics including

~ language variation and change
~ English in its historical and contemporary contexts
~ English in Britain and elsewhere in the world
~ local, regional, national and international varieties of the language
~ English as an international auxiliary language

The course can be taken as a diploma or a stand-alone one-year
Masters degree, is available (to UK students only) as a
two year part-time degree, and can be taken as a first step towards a
MPhil or PhD, subject to admission to a further degree programme
either at Aberdeen or elsewhere.

The University of Aberdeen is one of Scotland's ancient universities
and the fifth oldest in the UK, with more than five hundred years'
experience of delivering excellence in teaching and research. The
MLitt programme is designed around the expertise of members of staff
who are active researchers in language and linguistics. It provides
training in research methods and analytical discussion of current
debate on varieties of English within various local, regional,
national and international contexts. As optional courses on receptive
and productive skills in English language are available, and
non-native varieties of English are focussed on in several modules,
the programme is designed to accommodate the special interests of both
native and non-native speakers of English.

The course will appeal to students who wish to teach English either as
a first or second language, or who are interested in language planning
or communication or culture, or who want a further degree that
provides training in language and communication as a preparation for a
variety of professions.

For the 2003-04 session a scholarship which pays the difference
between international and home/EU fees is available. This will be
awarded to an outstanding international applicant with a background in
linguistics. See
http://www.abdn.ac.uk/sras/international/funding.shtml for details of
how to apply.
