English and American Studies

Welcome to English and American Studies at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg!

We offer various degree programs, from Bachelor to Master and teaching degree programs. Find out about the department, the academic fields we cover, and get to know our staff.

We offer various courses in English and American studies for beginning and advanced students:
BA English and American Studies
MA English Studies
MA North American Studies
MA The Americas / Las Américas

We also offer courses in teacher training for various school types:
Lehramt Gymnasium
Lehramt Unterrichtsfach (Grund-, Mittel-, Realschule)

Note: Beginning students in the B.A. degree program and the teacher training courses for English must take an aptitude test (Eignungsfeststellungsverfahren) before they can enrol in these degree programs. This is to ensure that language proficiency in English is at a level which will allow them to study successfully.

This virtual lecture series brings together scholars from around the globe in a series of talks. Project fellow Mark Kelley (Florida International University) will kick off the series on November 12th, 2020 with a talk titled „Alone, Together: Feeling Through 19th-Century Sailors in Eras of Global Isolation.“

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all winter term classes will be taught online. This applies also to the introductory events for first-semester students, which will be held at the beginning of the winter term.

The funding for the program "Qualität in Studium und Lehre" (QuiS) will run out at the end of this year. This jeopardizes a variety of projects—among them the Orientation Program, the Diversity Scouts program, and the FAU's Writing Centre.
