English is an international language – it is the native language of around 350 million people and the second language of many more. The programme is offered by Aarhus University.
As the language of globalisation, it enables you to communicate across borders, whether in culture or commerce. Today, the private job market, public institutions and PhD degree programmes require English language skills and knowledge of the Anglophone world.
You will acquire these competencies in the Master’s programme in English. In this degree programme, you will learn to use English at a high international level and gain in-depth knowledge of the history, culture and social conditions of the English-speaking world.
