English Studies

The minor in English Studies covers the study of the language, literature and culture of English-speaking countries. Students receive a solid overview of both classical and modern English-language literature and culture and also explore current topics from the areas of structural and applied linguistics.

In terms of content, the program has a geographic focus on the UK, North America and the postcolonial world. Due to its interdisciplinary orientation, the in-depth study of language, literature and culture always includes questions from the areas of history, philosophy, politics, and media studies as well.

In year two, students can choose electives and thus prioritize individual focus areas. Students can choose a profile in either English linguistics and communications, North American studies, or British and postcolonial literary and cultural studies.

 

Possible lines of work:

Cultural management (theater, opera, museums, etc.), international language institutes (adult education), journalism/media industry, communications industry (advertising, public relations, translation), book industry (libraries, booksellers, publishers), international cultural relations, marketing, tourism, international organizations/public authorities/governmental or non-governmental organizations, teaching at a German public school, academia (research management, teaching/research at universities, research institutions, university administration, etc.)

Job options strongly depend on a graduate’s chosen major.

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
