The English Institute participates in two interdisciplinary Master programs that are unique in Switzerland: the Literature MA (MA pilier "Littératures") and the Linguistics MA  (MA pilier "Sciences du language et de la communication").

The Literature MA is shaped around a core curriculum ('tronc commun') of 15 or 30 ECTS in literary history and theory, and made up of three modules: Foundational Texts, Poetics and Genre Theory, and Texts in Context. Courses in the core curriculum are offered by all participating institutes (German, English, Spanish, French, Classics) and may be in French or in any of the other languages offered at Neuchâtel. Students specializing in English Literature can take either 15 or 30 ECTS in the subject, and receive another 30 ECTS when they research and write their Master thesis. For more information on the MA pilier in "littératures," please click here .

The Linguistics MA  is also shaped around a core curriculum ('tronc ommun') of 10 or 15 ECTS in Sociolinguistics, Plurilingualism and in Discourse Analysis. Courses in the core curriculum are mainly offered by the Linguistics institute but may also be offered by all participating institutes (German, English, Spanish, French, Linguistics, Journalism) and are in French unless specified otherwise. Students specializing in English Linguistics can take either 20 or 35 ECTS in the subject, and receive another 30 ECTS when they research and write their Master thesis.
