Bachelor of English, as a study of English language, literature, and culture, has a fairly extensive reading list. Our lecturers will help you work through and understand the readings, but it is the students' responsibility to complete required reading in advance of each class session.

Above all, we would advise online students to acquire the course literature early, to ensure adequate time for reading as the semester begins.


In an age where English is emerging as the common, global language for science, society and cultural exchange, English language skills are essential for participation in cultural and scientific debates.

The Bachelor of English provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of English language, with a focus on its practical, scientific and artistic aspects. Through engaging the field's dynamic intellectual tradition, students develop their capacity for critical reflection within a broader cultural perspective.

Our excellent lecturers have long educational and work experience from the UK and USA, and can offer students a programme with an internationally high standard, in both the linguistic and cultural components.

A Bachelor of English opens the doors to careers and further education for diverse range of occupations, both in Norway and abroad.
