Do you want to learn how to master English?

Between 350 and 400 million people speak English as a native language, and at least as many people use the language as an official second language.

What will you, as a student, gain from studying English at the university level? You will gain knowledge about the structure of the language and a deeper insight into the culture, literature and history of the English-speaking countries, at the same time as you improve your ability to actively use English substantially.

English will provide you with insights into basic English linguistics, oral and written proficiency, plus an introduction to English literature and culture. You will get the opportunity to practise your skills in reading and analysing texts, as well as writing essays and making presentations in English.

English II deepens your understanding of both linguistics and literary studies. In addition, a 7.5 HEC elective course will offer you the opportunity to study an area of English studies more closely under the tutelage of a specialist in that area.

When you study the BA course in English, you continue your specialization by choosing more courses in linguistics and literary studies, and you will also carry out a 15 HEC degree project.

With the English magister course, you make a choice between linguistics and literary studies, and the course gives you subject-specific qualifications for applying to the PhD programme.

English can also be studied in career-based programmes for a magister degree or a degree in education, and also for further studies in translation.

In the global world of today, knowledge of English is essential, regardless of what profession you choose. Proficiency in English is vital for careers in international companies and organizations, like the EU and the UN. The central position of English ensures that the demand for teachers in the subject will remain high.
