Department of English
The Department of English offers to applicants for study of the English language both bachelor’s programs with a single major and also in combination with many other subjects (in programs with specialization in education). Both types of programs are designed to provide graduates with the possibility of a wide application in areas requiring high-quality language services and high levels of professionalism. They also provide a solid foundation for transition of bachelor graduates to follow-up master’s studies (again with a single or double major). Full-fledged training of prospective English teachers at primary and lower secondary schools is offered not only to UJEP graduates but also to candidates from other universities. Those interested in learning English will be welcomed by a young, dynamic team of university teachers and lecturers from abroad.
A professional profile of the department is focused on several areas – mainly on linguistic disciplines, areas of cultural studies including literary studies and research activity in didactics of the English language. The department is also involved in the creation of textbooks and engages in an active professional life of practicing teachers from throughout the country. They may annually attend the international conference Challenges, which became a high-quality event valued even beyond the borders of the Czech Republic.
