English Studies: Literature and Culture

An interdisciplinary program concentrating on various forms of culture and cultural phenomena. It will equip the students with an ability to analyze broadly defined culture, along with its signs and symbols, as well as to develop essential skills to interpret cultural artifacts.

The students will acquire ‘cultural literacy’, which will allow them to explore freely and respond more knowledgeably to the growing complexities of the modern world. The students will be able to build their expertise in the culture of English-speaking countries such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada or Australia, which for cultural, economic and political reasons still maintain their dominant position and are considered influential actors in the international arena. Most importantly, the students will also have a chance to develop their linguistic competence and communication skills necessary for the exchange of ideas related to the socio-political and cultural realms of the countries in question. The program includes courses in information technology, modern humanities or digital humanities. Overall, English Studies: Literature and Culture fosters critical, creative and unconventional thinking deemed in need in the contemporary world.

All the courses offered within the three-year BA program of the studies are conducted in English.

Coordinator: prof. UAM, dr hab. Ryszard Bartnik

Programmes in English are fee-paying studies.

The programme will open if the required number of students are admitted and acknowledge their intention to study.
