About English Studies at Károli Gáspár University

The objective of the two-year program is to acquaint students with a broadly defined concept of English literary culture, including its history, major trends, critical schools and, of course, its most representative works and authors.

Programme Structure

While holding a BA in English Studies and completing yet further foundational courses in the initial phases of the program are essential, students and instructors no longer just survey a given field, but undertake an in-depth exploration of it. Therefore, detailed textual analysis with its associated historical dimension constitutes the core activity in class. Our choice of readings has been partly determined by the academic profile of the department and the religious mission of the University. As a result, the program places particular emphasis on Biblical and Christian traditions and explores, among other issues, the complex and continuing presence of the Bible within English literature. The foundation courses of the program also include linguistics, history, culture and language use. During the 2016/17 curricular revision, a practical skills module has been added to the program, in response to the needs and challenges of the changing world.

Main subject areas

  • English language and literature
  • English linguistics
  • British history, society and culture
  • Post-colonial literature and culture
  • Different periods in English literary history
  • English literature and Christianity
  • Practical skills (advanced writing, academic presentation, editing skills, conference and workshop experience, research methodology, digital skills)

The list of courses included in the program can be found here.
