About

This 3-year English and American Studies program from University of Tübingen will enable students to achieve excellence in academic English, linguistic analysis, cultural studies, as well as the interpretation and evaluation of literary texts.

Overview

We pride ourselves on offering our students a wide variety of courses and programs ranging from Beowulf (the only complete Germanic epic) and Shakespeare to contemporary American and British novels, photography and film.

What is special about the Tübingen program?

In their first and second years, students will take one basic and one advanced module in each of the areas above. Students with English and American Studies as their minor will complete the program at the end of the advanced modules. In their third year, students majoring in English and American Studies will attend four focus modules and an additional lecture. Furthermore, students will submit their B.A. thesis before completion of the program.

All students of English and American Studies are strongly recommended to spend a period of time in an English-speaking country. This is an invaluable opportunity for students to improve their language skills and to immerse themselves in a different culture and academic environment. We offer our students the opportunity to partake in established exchange programs with universities in the United Kingdom, North America, Ireland, India, and Australia.
