Curriculum

At IACER, we believe that interaction and exchange between disciplines is crucial to a successful graduate education. We are the only institution that accepts students from different academic and professional backgrounds into the M.A. and M. Phil programs, and our courses weave knowledge from different avenues of human understanding. Additionally, we update our courses every semester, which allows each group of students to explore a multitude of relevant fields and their discourses.

The M.A. and M. Phil in English programs are rigorous and academically engaging, and the courses we offer invite you to discover some of the world’s greatest ideas and arguments while you develop your critical thinking and writing skills through engagement with texts, teachers and peers.

IACER’s M.A. in English program combines a host of courses that are essential to find cross-disciplinary solutions to contemporary problems. We offer courses in globalization, communication studies, international relations and conflict transformation, environmental studies, American studies and more, all of which are centered on the core English Studies.
