The Master’s program was a great preparation for the challenging and yet fascinating research environment of English studies. The quality of teachers was impressive, with renowned specialists in different aspects in the field of English studies, and very passionate about their work. Each course addressed English studies from a different point of view: linguistics, literature and culture; the result was a complete landscape of the subject. The courses were quite theoretical, but the teaching internship along with working as an intern for the Arts’ Festival of Salamanca provided the opportunity to explore more practical applications of the field, offering a good practice-knowledge balance. The Master’s courses provided me key knowledge and it gave me numerous insights on current research fields, and therefore helped me make the right decisions concerning my PhD field. The international environment has been great in the program, and I have definitely enjoyed meeting all of the other students from around the world. What I did not expect, which happened in addition to all of the above, was everything I learned from people coming from Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Greece, the USA, etc. The group quickly became great friends who shared similar passions! It was indeed, a truly rewarding, multi-cultural experience. Finally, I would highly recommend this program to any student willing to go for a Phd in English studies. I found the answer I was looking for, I think you will too.
