The department’s academic program is rounded out by a variety of student organizations and special events.
The drama group builds on a long history of excellent and innovative performances in English with a repertoire ranging from classical productions to premieres of works by contemporary playwrights - including students. It offers participants the chance to write, direct, stage manage and act in plays as well as take part in workshops throughout the semester.
The program of the Anglistenchor, the award-winning departmental choir, includes oratorios, a capella works, chamber concerts and an annual performance accompanying a silent film at a local festival. The choir also sings at events such as the Christmas party and commencement and goes on tour every few years.
Two social highlights in the academic year are the annual summer Garden Party and a Christmas Party organised by students in which students and staff perform sketches. The department is also pleased to have a very active student executive committee, drama group, choir and Creative Writing Group, all of which welcome interested newcomers.
