Welcome to the Department of English and American Studies at the University of Paderborn

Our department is committed to a broad perspective on language, literature, and culture in the English-speaking world. We offer degree programs for future teachers (GyGe, GHRGE/BK, Grundschule), a BA and MA program in English and American Literature and Culture, a BA and MA program in Linguistics, and a Ph.D. program open to a wide range of dissertation projects. 30 faculty members bring innovative approaches and international experience to their teaching and research. Guest lecturers from the English-speaking world and various opportunities to study abroad complement our program, building bridges from Paderborn to the UK, the US, Ireland, Canada, India, and Australia.
