During the English Studies programme of Eötvös Loránd University students become proficient in understanding and producing academic and media-oriented publications in the fields of English literature, socio-cultural history of the English language-based cultures (especially Great Britain, Ireland, Canada and Australia), applied and theoretical linguistics, mediating in English and their native language in specialised cultural, economic and political areas, teaching and transmitting knowledge concerning English literature and linguistics, and English language-based cultures and societies.
It is a fact of life that everywhere experts are needed who not only speak English correctly, but who are also familiar with the societies and cultures of those countries where English is the first language. Experience has shown that an extraordinarily large number of employers seek experts with not merely an excellent command of the language, but also with the ability to make good use of their knowledge of the English-speaking world. The transmission of such cultural knowledge is the foundation of tis program.
The program consists of the study of English Language, Linguistics, and Literature. Within this broad program of study, there are courses which a student must register for and attend as part of his or her degree program. There are also specializations tracks which give the student the opportunity to pursue his or her own, independent, in-depth research. A select few of the students graduating with an MA will have the opportunity to pursue PhD studies in English Linguistics or Literature either in Hungary or abroad.
