The objective of the English Studies programme at Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary 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.


While holding a BA in English Studies and completing yet further foundational courses in the initial phases of the program at Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary 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. 

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)

Programme Structure

  • Basic Concepts of Literary and Cultural Studies 
  • An Interdisciplinary Approach to the English Language
