We got great testimonials

  • MA studies at the English Language and Literature Department encouraged me to fully achieve my potentials. I had the opportunity to work with amazing professors who gave me great knowledge in my field of interest and who showed me the amazing, yet demanding world of academia.

  • Being a graduate of the English department of International Burch University, I started my MA studies expecting the quality of program here to meet the standards I'd got accustomed to. I knew my professors would be professional and approachable, and provide me with meaningful and applicable knowledge. However, this sequence of my academic pursuit was elevated on a whole new level with a program genuinely focused on shaping students with epistemic humility yet independency and confidence of young academicians. We had the luxury to be instructed on how to explore our interests and discover new knowledge by conducting studies as well as writing and publishing research papers; and knowing how to create a piece of work good enough to be accepted by international scientific journals is something not all students at this level are taught. So, I wholeheartedly recommend this program to those who want to see their academic potential growing freely, without the limitations often found in traditional educational institutions, because the English department at Burch is certainly not one.

  • The years I spent at the English Department of Burch University, including both my undergraduate and postgraduate education, have been some of the best of my life. At the Department I not only received an excellent education and a lot of practical experience in my field of interest, but I also got to meet incredible people, staff and students alike. The ELL Department feels like a second home - one that I will always be gladly coming back to.
