Students enrolled in this programme are required to earn 60 ECTS credits through courses leading to teaching competences.

If the student’s other major leads to a non-teaching degree, the student earns the necessary credit in the following way: 15 ECTS through ELT courses, 10 ECTS through the ELT graduation thesis, and 5 through an additional teaching-related course(s) offered either by the English Department or by the Centre for Teacher Education.

Note 2: Linguistic elective courses (Pragmatics and Psycholinguistics) can be taken in both 1st and 2nd year, while ELT elective courses can be taken only in the 2nd year.

Course description: The period spans the decades from the 1820s to approximately the 1860s marked by the flowering of national literature in post-revolutionary times; the adoption and americanization of European ideas in so-called New England Transcendentalism, and the emergence of alternative (women, African Americans, commoners) voices. Alternatively called the American Renaissance, the period testifies to the coming-of-age of American literature. The texts are a representative selection of the unprecedented surge of creative energy that left no aspect of social and personal life untouched (from religion, education, women’s rights to politics and abolition), and will thus guide is in our examination of the past to which the American present owes so much.
