B.A. Anglistik

Aims and Qualifications

The Department of English and American Studies offers a three-year programme of study, the B.A. Anglistik, after which students graduate with the degree Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). The programme will introduce you to a number of topics, methods and theories that are central to scholarly debates and scientific discussions in the field of Anglophone Studies. It is our aim to train your academic and didactic skills as well as your language competence and to provide you with the qualifications necessary to instruct others in the future.
