B.A. Programme

The 3-year B.A. study programme is designed to provide successful graduates subject knowledge (oborové znalosti) and skills in English in order to enable them to continue their studies in the Follow-up M.A. Study Programme to achieve fully-qualified status as lower and higher secondary school teachers or to continue M.A. studies in a similar subject area.

The programme covers the major fields in the study of present-day English (ranging from morphology to semantics) combining theory with practical application.  The aim of the literary disciplines is to train students to have a cultivated perception of literary texts and to provide a methodological basic for analyzing and understanding a range of texts.  While developing the ability to critically assess texts, these disciplines also provide students with a broad range of transferable skills, e.g., the ability to form arguments and to communicate them coherently and clearly both orally and in writing. The proficiency disciplines (Modern English) develop all four language skills during all three years of study so that successful graduates of the programme achieve a level of Proficiency C1-C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Those graduates of the programme who do not wish to continue their studies in the follow-up M.A. programme will be prepared for a range of careers where an in-depth knowledge of the English language is essential: the civil service, European institutions and others.  Optional disciplines in the programme such as English in Europe or Media English will further enhance their skills in these directions.
