The Institute of English Philology at KUL is proud to offer an attractive and modern programme of studies as well as high quality teaching and academic research. This is due to our young, student-friendly and dynamic team of lecturers and researchers. Special emphasis is placed on a thorough knowledge of the English language and its contemporary variations both in practice and in theory. The students themselves decide to what extent they will specialise in literature, linguistics or cultural studies, and to what extent their studies will be broadened by Celtic, American and Dutch elements. Graduates receive a thorough grounding in methodology and have the opportunity to gain additional skills in translation or teaching English to the visually impaired.

 

Programme of Studies.

The institute offers students a wide range of subjects and great freedom in choosing individual courses. Students are often only able to decide on their exact course of study after learning something about the various opportunities at first hand. For this reason students are gradually introduced to the possibilities from their first year of study on.

 

We offer:
Full- and part-time primary degrees (BA)
Part-time post-graduate degrees (MA)
Doctoral studies (PhD)

 

The Celtic Programme
Uniquely in Poland, the Institute of English Philology at KUL also offers a programme of Celtic courses to complement the English studies. With the exception of Brittany, the Celtic language areas overlap with English-speaking areas. A mixture of languages and cultures ensues and English studies without Celtic elements would be incomplete. Our students can learn contemporary Irish or Welsh, study the literature, history and culture of these areas, and deepen their knowledge by choosing Anglo-Celtic comparative studies of linguistics, literature, and cultural studies in their MA seminars.

 

Teaching English to the Visually Impaired
This is another unique feature of English at KUL. During their MA seminars students can prepare for working with visually impaired pupils. The pedagogical implications of visual impairment, Braille, tactile graphics, textbook adaptation and ways of supporting non-sighted pupils in integrated teaching - these are only some of the components of a programme whose emphasis is on practical skills gained in the course of regular lessons with unsighted pupils and students.

 

Graduate Profile
Graduates of the Institute of English Philology at KUL are characterised by a comprehensive humanities education and an excellent knowledge of the English language, the calling card of our institute. They are prepared for work in their profession, and their specialisations and the high standard of their MA theses predestines them for further academic work or indeed any profession that values knowledge of languages, independent thinking, broad horizons, data analysis skills and making decisions.
