English III for teaching English (EN0379) is an advanced level course consisting of one mandatory course unit, Culture Studies, an optional course where students can choose from the range of optional courses in literature studies and linguistics which are offered each term, and a degree project tied to the optional course (within linguistics OR literature).

  • The Culture Studies course is centred around a selection of culturally important texts, literary texts as well as television, movies or commercials, and aims at developing the students’ understanding of these texts and how they can use similar material in their teaching.
  • The optional course aim at developing the students’ understanding of literary / linguistic concepts, analyses and methodology within the chosen field (linguistics OR literature), and their ability to apply these on relevant authentic material.
  • The purpose of the degree project is to give the students the opportunity to independently identify and formulate a research question within a chosen field of study in linguistics or literature and to seek, collect, evaluate and interpret relevant information in relation to this research question and present this in a research paper. Please note that for a literary degree project your optional course should be in literature and for a linguistic degree project your optional course should be in linguistics.
