Description

Your verbal and written language skills will improve and your knowledge of the culture and social conditions of English-speaking countries increase. You learn how to master the language in both business and every-day situations, and your cultural and language expertise will enable you to facilitate communication both culturally and linguistically between Denmark and English-speaking countries. In addition, you become able to convey information and ideas clearly and vividly both verbally and in writing, and to plan and carry out large complex projects.

Today, most Danes have no problems ordering a drink or having a conversation in English when travelling abroad. However, this is not sufficient in a professional context. Whether working in the business sector or as a teacher, it is important that you have in-depth knowledge of both the English language and the culture of English-speaking countries if you need to negotiate contracts or work with individuals or companies in English-speaking countries.

It enables you to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings. In many situations, it is also a requirement that your level of English language proficiency is sufficiently high to enable you to read reports or other technical or scientific material of a complex nature. With a Master’s degree in English, you will be able to do that and much more.
