Programme overview

The English Studies programme provides an excellent opportunity to acquire a specialist qualification in:

  • English literature
  • Culture studies and linguistics.

It is a broadly interdisciplinary programme concerned with both the theoretical and empirical analysis of the role of the English language, culture and literature in modern society.

The programme consists of three equally balanced blocks of general and subject-specific courses:

  • Linguistics
  • Literature
  • Culture

The programme not only develops students’ subject-specific competencies but also provides them with competencies necessary to specialise in other fields.

Studies are closely related to the individualisation and differentiation of the study process, development of social skills, principles of study content integration, and application of relevant modern methods of teaching and learning.

What’s after?

  • Academic field (research in literature, culture and linguistics and teaching literary and language courses at higher education institutions).
  • Other diverse areas (editing, translation, lexicography, proofreading and publishing activities, work in literary archives and museums, and various other public institutions and organizations) in which practical application of the acquired knowledge is required.
  • The qualifications acquired by the graduates of the programme can also be applied in broader areas, including employment in publishing houses specialising in literature for the general public, a career in the media focused on scientific, professional and cultural issues, as well as work as translators of fictional and scientific texts.
