English Language and Culture at the University of Groningen

The BA in English Language and Culture at the University of Groningen is consistently rated as the best in the country. We teach exclusively in English, and all of our students profit from our strong research culture.

In the first year of the BA in English Language and Culture you will read a broad range of literary texts and you will learn about English as a language. You will analyse many important works, study literary theory, and engage with writings in English from the beginning to the present.

In the second year you will be able to choose courses on medieval literary studies, modern literature, and linguistics. For instance, you can study the writings of premodern women, the myth of King Arthur, the modernist novel, Shakespeare and his time, or contemporary American and postcolonial literature.

You can fully dedicate yourself to your main interest by writing a dissertation on your preferred topic in your third year.

There is a range of minors that complement an English Language and Culture degree, and many students spend time at a foreign university, for example in the UK or New Zealand.

After the BA degree, many students pursue one of the two MA programmes we offer: English Literature and Culture or Writing, Editing, and Mediating. You can also combine your MA in English with a teacher training course.
