At SLU-Madrid, we teach a truly trans-global English degree, with experts on Modern American, Celtic, Victorian and Early Modern English Literatures among our faculty. All Anglo literatures are treated equally; we don't just explore the British and American canon. The English Department offers courses on British and American literature and the growing body of transnational literature from Africa, India, and the Caribbean. Field trips bring literature alive. The Shakespeare course travels to Stratford-upon-Avon to see Shakespeare’s plays in his home town. Madrid’s museums and theaters enable study of literature in the context of other art forms. Students can also explore their own creativity in creative writing classes and pursue independent research in the Senior Seminar. The English faculty, trained at highly distinguished research institutions, are active scholars who are passionate about teaching.
The English Department’s curriculum, ranging from the classics to the dynamic innovations of world literature in English, is designed to develop students’ lifelong appreciation of the value and pleasure of literature. If interpreting literature enriches self-expression and empathy, knowledge of literary traditions and forms provides the understanding of historical and cultural difference essential to cosmopolitan humanism.
The English degree requires at least one semester of study on the campus in St. Louis, Missouri, in the US.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
