Buddies

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 lecturers have long educational and professional experience from the UK, the USA, and Canada 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.
