We offer students of English and American Studies a multifaceted core curriculum of courses in Literary Studies, Cultural Studies and Linguistics as well as courses in Academic English to nurture students’ language skills.
Literary and Cultural Studies, Linguistics, and Academic English are the individual areas of study in the program. The field of Academic English focuses on the skills of spoken and written language. Linguistics deals with language as a system (phone-tics/phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics), language as a means of communication (pragmatics, socio- and psycholinguistics, language acquisition) and the historical development of English. In the fields of Literary and Cultural Studies, students learn to explore and analyze literary and cultural texts including modern media such as photography or film and digital media within their specific socio-historical contexts.
We pride ourselves on offering students courses that cover a great variety of topics with regard to the English language and Anglophone literatures and cultures. In the subject-specific areas of our program, you may deal with as wide-ranging questions as: Comedy into tragedy: What are elements of comedy in Shakespeare‘s tragedy Romeo and Juliet? To what extent does Suzanne Collins’s trilogy The Hunger Games affirm or challenge gender stereotypes? How do you draw word trees? What does it take to give a successful impromptu speech?
The academic areas are complemented by a vast career-oriented program by the university’s Career Service. It offers a wide range of classes on journalism, digital humanities, international busi-ness and management, rhetoric and communication, academic writing, and many other subjects.
All students of English and American Studies are strongly recommended to spend some time in an English-speaking coun-try. This is an invaluable opportunity for students to improve their language skills and to immerse themselves in a different culture and academic environment.
There are many opportunities to go abroad. The ERASMUS program offers the opportunity to study in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Furthermore, the University of Tübingen offers an extensive exchange program with more than 50 universities in the United States and Canada, as well as a number of institutions in other English-speaking countries (Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India). We encourage our students to participate in one of these established exchange programs, which typically cover the tuition fees.
