The Bachelor’s Degree study programme of Anglophone Studies is an interdisciplinary curriculum, the graduates of which will become specialists in their field of studies. Drawing upon their knowledge of the historical, political, social, economic and cultural context of these countries, graduates of this study programme will be able to analyse phenomena related to their area of specialisation, draw conclusions, distinguish problems and find solutions. The language of instruction is predominantly English (approx. 90 %).
In the course of their studies, students will discuss the broader cultural context of the history and development of individual English-speaking countries. The main priority is a superior knowledge of English, together with the knowledge of the political, cultural and economic history of English-speaking countries.
The basic curriculum prepares students to cope with the growing demands of international mobility and for closer cooperation in education, research, and culture. Anglophone Studies graduates will be able to contribute to the development of mutual understanding, respect for and tolerance of various ethnicities, and cultural diversity. Students will deepen their knowledge of history, fine arts, music, film and theatre, as well as the literature of English-speaking countries.

A dispensation from the written language test may be granted by the University Rector provided that the applicant attaches to the application form a certified copy of a certificate proving successful completion of a state language examination or other internationally recognised examination in English (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge Certificate – FCE, CAE, CPE).
