Du über­legst, Englisch zu studieren? Then you should get to know us and our study program!

Learn­ing Eng­lish has been enjoy­able for you so far?
Do you want to learn more about how the lan­guage works, read and analyse a great vari­ety of Anglo­phone lit­er­a­ture?
Are you inter­est­ed in crit­i­cal­ly engag­ing with cul­tur­al and lit­er­ary the­o­ries?
Do you aim to become pro­fi­cient in speak­ing, writ­ing, and even teach­ing in Eng­lish?
Then the B.Ed./M.Ed. or Zwei-Fach B.A. with a major or minor in Eng­lish is the right choice for you!

Study­ing with us pro­vides you with the unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to work in a famil­iar atmos­phere in an engaged depart­ment with dis­tin­guished schol­ars, lec­tur­ers and a high num­ber of native speak­ers. With us you can fin­ish your stud­ies not only with an Eng­lish degree, but also get one step clos­er to your future goals and dreams. Here are some videos from our stu­dents and their expe­ri­ences, as well as one of our pro­fes­sors, Michael Mey­er, to give you some more insights into our department:

But what exact­ly does it mean to study Eng­lish? Study­ing Eng­lish means tak­ing cours­es in lan­guage prac­tice, lit­er­a­ture and cul­tur­al stud­ies, as well as lin­guis­tics. Stu­dents pur­su­ing a degree in edu­ca­tion also need to com­plete cours­es in TEFL (Teach­ing Eng­lish as a For­eign Lan­guage). You have nev­er heard of lin­guis­tics before, want to find out what ques­tions and phe­nom­e­na are inves­ti­gat­ed in lit­er­a­ture and cul­tur­al stud­ies and want to know what we focus on in our lan­guage prac­tice cours­es? Then come and vis­it us at our ‘tea and bis­cuits’ get-togeth­er, join our open lec­tures and sem­i­nars through­out the day, and bring any ques­tions you might have.
If you want to gath­er some more intel in advance, here are some videos explain­ing the con­tent and nature of the three main areas:
