What is special about this programme?
Do you ever wonder about the power and the beauty of the written word? Are you curious about how we use language and why we adapt the way we speak and write to social or cultural circumstances? If you do think about such issues, this study programme may be for you.
The structure of the Bachelor en Cultures Européennes is quite unique: it embeds traditional training in English Studies within a lived interdisciplinary and intercultural framework. Indeed, our team brings together staff from different parts of the world, and our teaching is informed by a variety of academic cultures and methodologies.
Moreover, the interdisciplinary framework of the Bachelor is co-organised by the five specialisation tracks, including English Studies, of the study programme:
It provides general introductions to the other BCE and related fields on the one hand, and interdisciplinary training on the other.
Your focus. Your choice!
Our study programme is designed to promote critical and independent thinking as well as a sense of initiative in our students. You will be encouraged to combine your specialisation in English Studies with courses from other fields.
What this interdisciplinary focus looks like depends in part on your own study and research interests. The opportunity to shape your own academic path(s) in your specialised track in combination with related fields will help you to acquire the qualities we wish to develop in our students: autonomy, open-mindedness, and flexibility.
We strongly believe that these qualities will prove invaluable to you as you advance in your academic career and embark on your professional lives.
