University of Nottingham: Applied English Programme by Web-Based Distance Learning MA

Institution University of Nottingham
Department School of English
Study type Taught


This course lets you develop your specialism, or study what you love, without the constraints of a set curriculum. You can choose from a large number of ‘pods’ of study, created by subject experts, to build your own programme.

You can choose pods from across our different MA courses (listed below) or you can create a path that’s unique to you. In this case, you can graduate with an MA in Applied English.

Alternatively, if you specialise in your pod choices, you can graduate with one of the following MA degrees:

  • MA Applied Linguistics

  • MA Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching

  • MA English Literature

  • MA Literary Linguistics

  • MA Medieval Englishes

  • MA Modern and Contemporary Literature

  • MA Name-Studies

  • MA Professional Communication

  • MA World Literatures

You don't need to decide right at the beginning where you will end up: your final degree depends on studying at least two-thirds of your course in a specialised area.
