The English Studies programme provides an excellent opportunity to acquire a specialist qualification in:
- English literature
- Culture studies
- Linguistics with a special track in media 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 in linguistics, literature and culture and a block of special courses in media linguistics that is designed to help students apply the latest theories and methods of media linguistics, further develop communicative skills in English in various spheres of public communication and create modern media products.
