At a time when English is the common language in nearly every domain, from science to industry to education to popular culture, it is hard to deny that a high proficiency in English is needed to participate fully in the world today.
Bachelor of English is a research-based and internationally competitive three-year programme, taught by highly qualified subject specialists, that combines the study of English language, culture and literature. Classes engage a variety of exciting topics, taught with a deep appreciation of history and in a lively, communal atmosphere. Students have opportunities for a study trip to the UK as well as international exchanges to our partner universities in the US, UK, and Japan.
The Bachelor of English opens several opportunities, including continuing with graduate work, or within the professional spheres of travel and tourism, diplomacy and the cultural sector, both in Norway and the wider world.
Students are encouraged to go on an international exchange during the third year of this programme, for instance to one of Nord University's partner institutions in Japan, the UK or the US. The university has different exchange programmes.
This programme is open to international students at Nord University. Please note that excellent English language skills are expected from students, ideally exceeding the formal minimum requirements.
