Philology - English Philology

"In contemporary knowledge-based societies, the sill of adequate and effective transfer of information is absolutely essential. English as an instrument of global communication here is particularly indispensable. For this reason, it is worth investing in a deeper understanding of the English language and of issues related to the cultural conditions of communication. Thanks to the unique program offered at TEU, students have the opportunity to work with language, study and analyze it within its cultural context, to gradually become skilful language users."

Applied Linguistics is a challenging and stimulating discipline focusing on practical issues related to the use of language in social context and professional communication. This highly original programme combines the practical study of two or three foreign languages with intercultural communication skills, educating professional translators, interpreters and all those who will need language fluency at an expert level in their future career. Besides training in advanced English, the course provides an excellent grounding in a second foreign language (German, French, or Spanish).
