About the Department

Since 1995, the Department of English Studies has been functional as one of the three departments that constitute the Institute of English and American Studies, and also as one of the largest departments at the University of Szeged. Relying on the achievements of its predecessor, the former Department of English Language and Literature, our department has been successful in establishing its national and international reputation by high quality research and teaching activities, projects and frameworks of cooperation. The careers of our graduates, our specialization programs, publications and international conferences are indicative of the wide spectrum of academic fields that the members of our faculty specialize in.

The Department of English Studies is responsible for the operation of the BA Program in English Studies as well as the MA Program which carries three specialization tracks: English Applied Linguistics, Interdisciplinary Study of Culture, Gender through Literatures and Cultures in English.
