  • Course structure

    The course includes four modules. One module is obligatory. For the other modules, students select three optional modules in English language literature or English linguistics ahead of each term. Different optional modules are given within the two specialisations each term.

    Eligibility criteria are stated in the syllabus.

    Modules

    Module 1: Literary Cultures 1832-Now, LT2B (7.5 credits)

    The module is obligatory within the course and runs in period AB.

    This module focuses on literature in English from different genres and different parts of the world from the period 1832 to the present. Terms and analytical concepts that the students acquired in English I and English II are used and expanded upon. In addition, students gain historical and critical perspectives on literary texts. Special emphasis is placed on the students’ own ability to use English in speech and in writing to critically analyse the texts in question.
