English Language and Culture
Studying exclusively in English, you explore the rich and diverse English-speaking world through its literary, linguistic and cultural heritages, from its origins to its global expansion and beyond.
Already in the first year, the Bachelor's English Language and Culture at the UvA stands out thanks to its global focus, integrating the diversity of the English-speaking world and the richness of its varied literary and linguistic heritages. Alongside the origins, development and mechanics of the English language, you explore World Englishes (Australian, South African, Indian and Singaporean, to name a few) as well as how these are perceived and represented in literature and the media. Alongside the traditional canon of English literature, including works by William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and the Romantic poets, you examine the newest forms of contemporary English literature from around the globe, all studied within the appropriate political, social and historical contexts.
The variety of options for elective courses, which may include study abroad and/or an internship, allows you to further customise the study to your interests.
