Our Courses and Subjects
The Department is located at The English Park Campus - Centre for the Humanities. Here students, teachers and researchers from a number of different disciplines create a dynamic study environment. Every term more than 700 students enroll in our courses.
We offer courses in the following subjects: English, American Studies and Celtic Studies. Three terms of English (A1-C1) may constitute a major in a Bachelor's Degree. Then it is possible to continue on to our second-cycle programme in English in order to obtain a Master's Degree in English.
