Galicia demands in the current situation a specific program in English Studies that has the active participation of teachers from the three Galician universities in a common project for the training of doctors in the main lines of research within this field of knowledge: culture and English and North American literary texts, other English-language literatures, English linguistics in its synchronic and diachronic aspects, and linguistics applied to the teaching of English and to translation.
Among the characteristics of the program, its interuniversity character stands out, as well as being the only one of these characteristics in the SUG. It has a wide and varied offer of research lines, and highlights the high academic and research training of the teaching staff. It should be noted the great interest of the training activities planned for doctoral students.
The purposes of this Doctorate Program are to train professionals to develop teaching and research activities in university centers and higher education institutes, to provide Galician students with the possibility of attending the numerous existing job offers in this field, as well as to develop communicative skills in the academic field, and carry out and defend research papers in a critical, rigorous and original way.
