Strength of program

Students in the English studies track within the English and American Studies BA program are offered a chance to acquaint themselves with the foundations of information technology and typography in the first phase of their studies. This is followed by a series of seminars and lectures aimed at developing students’ competence in using English as a language of global communication, academic writing, and everyday oral argumentation in a scholarly and business environment. Students will thus attain the foundations of academic research, evaluation and critical thinking in English literature, British and American socio-political history, and develop an understanding of the linguistic levels of description and analysis of English (phonology and syntax).

Students opting for the American Studies track within the English and American Studies BA program are given the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the background and idiosyncratic features of American history, culture, literature, and the American variety of English. By focusing on these areas of research, the aim of the American Studies track is to impart the students with the foundations of critical thinking and academic research in order to prepare them for future studies or for successful endeavours when entering the job market.
