Overview

Description of the course / programme

The primary goal of our BA program in English and American Studies is to offer our students practical knowledge and skills that will enable them to pursue careers in a competitive global market. A strong knowledge of the English language and global English-language culture is an essential foundation for continued studies and training in an increasingly wide array of fields. Our program places strong emphasis on language development with carefully designed courses which help students acquire a high degree of proficiency in English, both written and spoken, but we also offer an engaging array of courses in linguistics and English-language culture, literature, and history (with a focus first and foremost on the countries of the United Kingdom, Ireland and North America).

The primary goal of our BA program in English and American Studies is to offer our students practical knowledge and skills that will enable them to pursue careers in a competitive global market. A strong knowledge of the English language and global English-language culture is an essential foundation for continued studies and training in an increasingly wide array of fields. Our program places strong emphasis on language development with carefully designed courses which help students acquire a high degree of proficiency in English, both written and spoken, but we also offer an engaging array of courses in linguistics and English-language culture, literature, and history (with a focus first and foremost on the countries of the United Kingdom, Ireland and North America).

In addition to courses which have become a traditional part of English and American studies (e.g. English literature since the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, phonetics and phonology, descriptive grammar, etc.), our program also gives students chances to take courses which are rarely offered at other institutions. These courses include, for instance, seminars on the relationship between literature and Christianity, the history of Christianity in Great Britain and North America, the Irish language, Canadian history and culture, and courses on the Middle Ages from the perspectives of literature, history, culture, and linguistics. Students can choose between two tracks (literature-culture or linguistics) and also have to take a specialization in North American studies. These programs of study provide students with a thorough knowledge of the subjects in question and the skills to pursue further studies and compete in their fields.
