Studying English literature opens up a world of inspiration and creativity, while also developing skills that are essential for today's global environment. It is a chance to discover how literature makes sense of the world through stories, poems, novels and plays. It is also a chance to sharpen your own ability to write, read, analyze and persuade.
Studies in the department are conducted in English. Through extensive reading and writing, students in our english course develop their skills of analysis, interpretation and self-expression. They receive a thorough introduction to essential literary genres (novels, poems, criticism) and study the work of great canonical authors (Shakespeare, Milton, Austen, Dickens) as well as contemporary ones. Advanced seminars expose students to new horizons, such as translation and creative writing, and invite them to consider various special topics in literary study: literature and gender, literature and the visual arts, literature and religion and so on.
Creative Writing students receive instruction from published poets and fiction writers as they write their own original thesis project in poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction.
The Department of English language and literature is proud of its warm, inclusive atmosphere, devoted academic faculty, and excellent administrative staff. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
