ONE LANGUAGE – ENDLESS OPPORTUNITY

“It can make a lot of sense to study a discipline from the outside, so to speak. The way we have put together the English degree at Aarhus highlights things that an English or American university wouldn’t.”

Inger H. Dalsgaard, Associate Professor, English

English is the fastest-developing language in the world, growing at about one new word every two hours. It is the native language of 350 million people and the second language of many more. It is the language of globalisation, and organisations worldwide are increasingly agreeing on English as their official business language. As the importance and prevalence of English continue to rise, it is more and more necessary for climbing up the career ladder. Students who enrol in the MA in English programme have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the language, culture, history and society of the English-speaking world.
