Founded in 1973, the Department of English at the University of Klagenfurt is well known for its excellent student-to-teacher ratio and its progressive teaching programmes. It was the first English department in Austria to introduce B.A. and M.A. programmes in 2005 and continues to be committed to equipping students with the methods, knowledge, and critical thinking skills they need in a quickly changing cultural and professional landscape.
In addition to its Teacher Training Programme the department offers a Bachelor Programme and a Master Programme in English and American Studies (Anglistik und Amerikanistik). All our programmes combine traditional and innovate approaches in courses on a wide range of topics, among them applied linguistics, content and language integrated learning methods, and Anglophone literatures and cultures with a special emphasis on film, visual culture, and the new media. Starting in fall 2017, the department also offers an interdisciplinary Master Game Studies and Engineering.
