German term or phrase:Magisterstudium Anglistik und Linguistik
Master's work in Linguistics and English Language and Literature
Explanation: Anglistik typically encompasses studies in both the language and literature of English-speaking peoples.
German universities generally do not grant baccalaureate degrees.
A master's is the usual terminal degree for university students after (usually) five years of postsecondary schooling and overlaps only a little with what is
understood as graduate school in the U.S.
Explanation: Careful with this one. A Magisterstudium does not constitute postgraduate (or, for US speakers, graduate) work! In Scotland this is an undergraduate degree, by the way. I would suggest "undergraduate Masters degree in ...".
I hold an MA in Linguistics (first degree) from the University of Edinburgh
