Do you want to get a really thorough in-depth knowledge of the language the whole world uses when it comes to activity in business, technology, science and culture across national boundaries? Do you want to learn about the historical, political, social and cultural contexts that involve language? Then you should choose the course in English at Odense.

In line with internationalisation and the spread of the internet, there is a growing need for those with skills in English – in private business, too. It is, therefore, a myth that a degree in English is directed solely at future teaching at high school – a fact that is also evident in the revised syllabus for English at Odense. On the English course, you will get a chance to acquire specialist knowledge in a variety of self-chosen disciplines, allowing you course to be tailored to your particular needs and wishes.

The degree in English at Odense provides an in-depth course in English language and culture with an emphasis on the United Kingdom, Ireland and USA but with reference both to cultures of the remainder of the English-speaking world such as South Africa, Canada and Australia and to the international language of our time.

The course will give you the opportunity to develop your basic knowledge of English, both written and oral. You will acquire both a practical and a theoretical foundation, and this will allow you to become more closely acquainted with the culture of English-speaking countries. The course in English is an academic study where you will learn to understand and communicate complex issues especially relating to British and American culture, language, literature and society.
