Overview

The English Studies (Media Linguistics) programme at Vilnius University  is a broad interdisciplinary programme concerned with both the theoretical and empirical analysis of the role of the English language, culture and literature in modern society.

The programme does not only develop students' subject-specific competences, but also provides them with competences necessary to specialise in other fields.Studies are closely related to the individualisation and differentiation of the study process, development of social skills, principles of study content integration, application of relevant modern methods of teaching and learning.
