Bachelor programme English and American Studies (E)

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

In the course of the degree programme students gain theoretical and practical skills in the English language and in various – subject-specific and generally occupation-relevant – subject areas, and thus the possibility to work in a great number of established and alternative occupational fields after their graduation. These occupational fields all have different qualification profiles but they all require, apart from the ability to use language (both the mother tongue and the foreign language) consciously and in a sophisticated way, great cultural and scientific-analytical skills. The medium of instruction is English.
