The M.Phil in Anglophone Studies

Our M.Phil in Anglophone Studies is a research degree that considers students as researchers. They specialise in their chosen area of study, write two dissertations, and take their first steps in an academic career. This research degree is unique in the South of France in providing a thorough training in all aspects of Anglophone studies, literature, history, linguistics and translation, while offering students the chance to organise their own conference and acquire basic training in digital humanities.
