When I search for “English” in the Programs section, the results include a lot of programs that do not have “English” in the program name. Is the search working?

How to Use OUInfo

The search is correct – you can still study English through these programs, even though “English” is not in their program names.

Many universities give their programs general names, such as “Arts”, “Humanities” or “Science”. You can usually study a wide variety of subjects, including English, through these programs.

For example, a university might have a degree called “Arts” that you could study several subjects through, including:

  • English,
  • Drama,
  • Economics,
  • History,
  • French,
  • Sociology,
  • Philosophy
  • and more.

To view all subjects of major interest available through a given program, go to that program’s Overview tab in the Program Summary section. To study one of the specific subjects listed, you must apply to the general degree program.

Check the program’s details for more information.
