Welcome!

Our website will provide you with helpful information and useful links for English and American Studies at Universität Kassel.

In our institute teaching and research are organized in four different fields of study: Linguistics (English Linguistics, Computational Linguistics), Applied Linguistics, Foreign Language Research & Intercultural Communication, English Literary Studies and American Literary Studies as well as Cultural Studies (the latter in cooperation with the History of Great Britain and America Unit within the Faculty of Social Sciences).

Essentially all courses are given in English. Language Practice courses are the basis for further studies in the special branches of science and didactics offered by the institute. (Strong English skills are an admission requirement for studies in our institute.)

For details on requirements, contents and modules of the above degree programmes please have a look at the corresponding module exam regulations.

Students from non-modularized programmes at other universities may still be able to enter the following programmes which are due to expire soon:

The focus of our scientific and didactical courses changes every semester. For more specific information please refer to the current course catalogue above.

In addition to the courses available we provide you with the opportunity to participate in various cooperation programmes with other universities and institutions in English-speaking countries. (For further information about studies abroad please contact the International Office.) The Integrated Learning Workshop and Kasseler Englisch Colloquium offer even more ways of efficient studying.

And that's not all: The student representatives of our institute are highly motivated to help you as well as to assert your rights within the university organisation. If you are interested in cultural activities you can join our student theatre Red Brick Company or try out your creative skills by writing for our student magazine BLANK. Regular special events complement our offer.
