At Malmö University, English Studies reflects our faculty’s research and the breadth of current scholarship. As is standard in Swedish higher education, the Bachelor programme comprises linguistic and literary components, with faculty specialising in either discipline. This combination fosters a sophisticated consciousness of how language is structured and used in a range of social contexts.
Language is our main form of communication: mostly we use it effortlessly, unaware of its intricacy and uniqueness; but linguistics aims to understand how it works, through grammar, phonetics, and semantics, and using tools such as corpus linguistics and critical discourse analysis. You will learn to make detailed analyses of language data and examine socially relevant aspects of language use, to explain how it communicates ideas, exerts power, and builds solidarity.
Literature is written to entertain; but can it also shape society? Literary studies aims to familiarise you with poetry, drama and prose from the Renaissance to today, enhancing your understanding of how texts are constructed, how we respond to them, and how they relate to historical contexts and other arts. By using a range of critical frameworks, you will learn to relate textual details to issues such as identity, beauty, and politics.
Our students gain skills applicable to a range of careers, including media (journalism, publishing, TV, radio, film), teaching, business and administration. You will learn to analyse, evaluate, and create texts – transferable skills recognised by employers who value clear arguments, logical analysis, careful management of complex information, creative solutions and initiative in conducting research. The BA provides a strong foundation for graduate study in linguistics or literature, creative writing, teaching, and other fields.
