More information



The aim of the programme is to train experts who have a proficient command of the English language and have profound knowledge regarding English-speaking cultures. BA graduates are able to responsibly interpret, transmit and create texts in the fields of everyday life, culture, politics, economics, social life, literature and linguistics at C1 level (CEFR framework). The programme lays emphasis on skills development, both in speaking and writing/reading, as well as acquainting students with a wide range of fields regarding English-speaking cultures, fostering creativity and critical thinking.

Our BA programme offers two kinds of specialisations: English Studies (50 credits, mainly for those wishing to go on to MA) and Secretarial and Management (50 credits, chiefly for students of a more practical orientation).
