We welcome you to the website of the English Department. Since 1993, the department has gained an international reputation for teaching and conducting research with partners in China, South Africa, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Canada and many others. The work and research of the four professorships, English Language and Linguistics, English Literature(s), British and American Social/Cultural Studies, and American Studies, places particular emphasis on intercultural competence and intercultural communication. The sections TESOL and the practical language programme round up an education for our students that prepares our alumni for the requirements of the modern job market.
