English in a Professional Context

In EPCO 1 & 2, you will encounter texts from professional life – texts people read and write in the course of their work. You will learn how to analyze these texts to get a better understanding of how text type, purpose, and audience play a role in the way the English language is used outside of the university – in business, in law, in science, or in medicine, for example. These courses help prepare you for a future role as a language mediator in the workplace: in EPCO 2, you will learn how to transform specialist texts into texts that are accessible for laypeople.

Acquire valuable writing skills for your future career.
