The master's programme Anglophone Modernities and Culture prepares graduates for an academic profession in research and teaching with a focus on postcolonial, British or American literatures and cultures. Moreover, it opens career opportunities wherever an in-depth understanding of the diversity of literary and cultural developments in the English-speaking world is called for. This knowledge enables students to pursue careers in specialist journalism, publishing, the non-profit sector, translation, cultural education, advertising and public relations. The cooperation with international partner universities and institutions also qualifies students for positions in international organizations, higher education management as well as in archives and libraries.
