The English Department comprises some 30 teacher-researchers (professors and lecturers), 10 tenured teachers (PRAG, or Associate Professors), several assistant-instructors and teaching assistants and 4 English-speaking lecteurs/lectrices (language assistants).
Our Bachelor's program allows students to become proficient in literary, journalistic and everyday written language. The course also provides proficiency in oral language and knowledge of variation. At the Master's level, we offer two programs: one focused on teaching and the other focused on research and oral and written communication to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
Advice for Incoming Erasmus students
Choosing courses in the English department: Native and non-native English speakers who wish to take classes in the English department may do so. However, in order to avoid overcrowded classes, international students may not enroll in 2nd-year classes.
Translation classes for Native-English speakers
If you are majoring in French at your home university, we advise that you take the 3rd-year (L3) translation classes: Thème (translation from French into English) and Version (translation from English into French). If you are not majoring in French at your home university, we advise that you take the 1st-year (L1) translation classes (Techniques de la traduction in semester 1, Version in semester2).
Translation classes for Non-native-English speakers
If you are majoring in English and/or French at your home university, we advise that you take the 3rd-year (L3) Thème class (translation from French to English) and the 1st-year (L1) Version class in the second semester (translation from English to French). If you are not majoring in English and/or French at your home university, we advise that you take the 1st-year (L1) translation classes (Techniques de la traduction in semester 1, Version in semester 2).
Literature and Civilisation classes
Students are advised that ALL courses within a literature or civilisation module (or UE) must be taken. Incoming Erasmus students must take the same exams as local students. They are therefore required to be present during the university exams sessions in January and May/June (see the University Calendar).
