Course Focus: Language, Literature, Culture
The bachelor's degree programme in English and American Studies at the University of Bamberg focuses on the languages, literatures and cultures of the English-speaking world. Divided into the four sub-disciplines of Literary Studies, Linguistics, Cultural Studies and Language Practice, the programme furnishes students with an in-depth understanding of the structures, significances and functions of the English language and the various literary and cultural dimensions of Great Britain, the United States and other anglophone regions.
The programme focuses on the development of linguistic, literary and cultural phenomena ranging from the Middle Ages to today's chatrooms and poetry slams. Students also work on their oral and written English proficiency.
This varied degree programme teaches a wide range of technical, communicational and cultural skills that are highly sought after in many fields of modern society.
The sub-disciplines of the bachelor's degree in English and American Studies passed the internal accreditation process in 2021 and have been reaccredited. The process verified that the degree programmes continue to meet all relevant external quality requirements, in particular the provisions of the Bavarian study accreditation ordinance (Studienakkreditierungsverordnung) and our additional, internal quality standards. Once a number of minor conditions have been met, the accreditation will remain valid until 2027.
