Why English literature
English is the language of the global economy. It is a language of scientific and cultural exchange. You hear it on the radio and on television. You read it on your computer, on your phone, and maybe in books too. How well can you communicate in English? Do you really understand its speakers—their centuries-old traditions, the stories they tell today, their visions of the future—and know how to address them? A degree from the Department of English and American Studies at Tel Aviv University will help you achieve oral and written fluency in the language and decode some of the most powerful expressions of the human experience. It will make a difference both in the career you pursue and in your understanding of the world around you.
