  • English language and culture

    The BA in English Language and Culture (Engelse taal en cultuur) at the University of Groningen is consistently rated as the best in the country. We teach exclusively in English, and all of our students profit from our strong research culture.

    The programme concentrates on different aspects of the English language and on literature written in English: language proficiency, linguistics, and the literature from the Middle Ages down to the present day, from the birthplace of the language in England to the United States and all parts of the Commonwealth. We cover theory, the entire range of genres and modes of writing, besides placing a strong emphasis on the cultural context of literary texts.

    In the first year of the BA in English Language and Culture you will read a broad range of literary texts and you will learn about English as a language. You will analyse many important works, study literary theory, and engage with writings in English from the beginning to the present.In the second year you will be able to choose courses on medieval literary studies, modern literature, and linguistics. For instance, you can study the writings of premodern women, the myth of King Arthur, the modernist novel, Shakespeare and his time, contemporary American and post-colonial literature, or Language in use or Phonology. You can fully dedicate yourself to your main interest by writing a dissertation on your preferred topic in your third year.
