The Bachelor’s degree programme in English Language and Culture concentrates on all aspects of the English language and literature written in English: language proficiency, linguistics and history of the English language, and the literature from the Middle Ages down to the present day, from the birthplace of the language in England to the United States and all parts of the Commonwealth. The programme is characterized by a broad and integrated approach to language and literature, with the latter field often being placed in a sociohistorical framework.

The three-year programme acquaints you with various subdisciplines:

  • English proficiency
  • Modern English linguistics
  • Modern English Literature
  • Socio-political and cultural history of the English speaking countries
  • Historical Linguistics and Old and Middle English Literature

and trains you in a number of skills such as writing, critical data collection and analysis, and literary appreciation.
