Double Degree Program:

University of Bayreuth and

Fu Jen Catholic University (Taipei, Taiwan)



The international Double Degree Program between UBT and Fu Jen aims at advanced scholarly competence in one of two major areas: "literature" or "linguistics." The program offers innovative courses to postgraduate students who feel challenged by a global perspective and who have a background in Anglophone, American, and British Studies. It provides in-depth and theoretically informed study of the literatures and cultures of the English-speaking world, and of linguistic phenomena of English in its varieties. Courses address a wide range of forms of cultural expression such as literature, film, theater, music, and other forms of popular culture, paying particular attention to inter- and transcultural issues.
