Welcome to the Department of English | Secondary Education

As part of Cluster Mitte, the Department of English | Secondary Education organises, conducts, and researches the teacher training programme for English in secondary education (BA & MA, see STUDY PROGRAMME). These programmes encompass five main areas: teaching English as a foreign language, literary studies, culture studies, linguistics, and language proficiency.

Our team at PHOÖ consists of full-time professors, external lecturers and teachers as well as a foreign language assistant. In addition to running the BA and MA programme, the Department of English | Secondary Education is also involved in various research projects across all five areas mentioned above

Looking back on a 40-year history of English studies in tertiary education, and with over 100 undergraduate students per year, the Department of English | Secondary Education is a dynamic and vibrant place to work and study.
