The structure of the Bachelor En Cultures Européennes - Filière English Studies is quite unique: it embeds traditional training in English Studies within a lived interdisciplinary and intercultural framework.

It provides general introductions to the other BCE and related fields on the one hand, and interdisciplinary training on the other.Your focus. Your choice!
Our Cultures Européennes - English studies programme at the University of Luxembourg is designed to promote critical and independent thinking as well as a sense of initiative in our students. You will be encouraged to combine your specialisation in English Studies with courses from other fields.
What this interdisciplinary focus looks like depends in part on your own study and research interests. The opportunity to shape your own academic path(s) in your specialised track in combination with related fields will help you to acquire the qualities we wish to develop in our students: autonomy, open-mindedness, and flexibility.
We strongly believe that these qualities will prove invaluable to you as you advance in your academic career and embark on your professional lives.
