Dr. Judit Nagy
The foundation courses (16 credits) and the pre-specialization module (17 credits) give a deeper insight into the literary, cultural, historical, and linguistic aspects of the English language than courses in this field at the BA level. Students will also get an introduction into digital humanities. Another great strength of the programme is the Practical Skills Module (14 credits), where students can further develop their already advanced English language skills in speaking, academic writing, academic presentation, and text editing. Students can specialize in English Literature and Culture, English Applied Linguistics, and the Society and Culture of English-speaking countries from the second semester onwards. 43 credits need to be obtained from one of the specialization modules. A further 10 credits are allocated to elective courses or to an internship, and students also have to write a thesis (20 credits).
