Department of English

Welcome |

The Department of English is part of the Faculty of Education and Arts and offers teaching at campuses in Bodø, Levanger, Nesna, and Mo i Rana. Focusing on subject pedagogy, literature, and language, our course offerings provide English accreditation for student teachers studying to teach in elementary schools (1-7), lower secondary schools (5-10) and upper secondary schools (8-13). Both Bodø and Levanger offer courses for in-service teachers (KfK) and a variety of packages for international students. The Bodø Campus also offers courses for students in the Business School and a three-year Bachelor in English degree with courses on both language and literature. This bachelor programme provides not only a foundation in the Humanities, but also an alternative route into teaching. 

The Department produces research of international quality under the banner of the subject English in areas such as: literature, children’s literature in English language education, linguistics & applied linguistics, and multilingualism. It is the home of the journal Children’s Literature in English Language Education (CLELEjournal).
