The English Department is one of the seven departments of languages and literatures at the University of Bern. We are a lively, medium-sized department with currently around 600 students, six full professors and about a dozen teaching staff. The fields covered in the department include a wide range of research areas in both literature and linguistics. This website provides you with information regarding our study programmes, courses, staff members, ongoing research projects and current events.
