Overview

The course includes English-language literary and cultural studies, linguistics, medieval literature and English language history. Diverse themed seminars convey the ability to analyze texts, (visual) media and language data. Scientific and empirical methods and theories are used and discussed for this purpose. Separate exercises systematically improve English language skills. Overall, care is taken to ensure that important professional key qualifications such as information skills, abstraction skills and rhetorical skills are trained at the same time. 

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The course is divided into three phases, which are progressively more scientifically demanding. In the first year of study, basic knowledge in the areas of linguistics as well as cultural and literary studies is imparted, which relate to different regions and epochs of the English-speaking world. At the same time, language skills will be deepened and improved.

The second phase of study deepens the knowledge acquired in freely selectable themed seminars. In this section of the program, research skills and the writing of written
papers are specially trained. Language practice also focuses on oral skills and presentation skills.

In the last phase of their studies, students choose their seminars on their own subject areas and write written assignments. Topics can come from the fields of literature, film, painting, new media, varieties of English or empirical language research. At the end of the core subject, there is a longer academic thesis, which is supervised in terms of method and content.
A semester abroad is not mandatory, but is recommended and is very much supported by numerous partnerships with the institute.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Admission requirement is the general or relevant subject-related higher education entrance qualification. Since very good English language skills (B2) are a prerequisite for a successful course of study, a placement test (Oxford English Placement Test) must be completed at the beginning of the course.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Experience shows that cultural management, publishing, advertising, public relations, event management, corporate communication, software development (language technology, computer games) or content management in traditional and electronic media are some of the career prospects that a bachelor's degree in English and American studies enables. In the core subject, a practical module is offered that concretizes and improves these perspectives
