About us...

The Department of English Language and Literature is the largest foreign language department of the Faculty of Letters, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, and one of the most important in Romania.

It has highly enthusiastic, fully qualified members in the main specializations at undergraduate and MA levels that it offers, i.e. English Language and Literature, American Studies, Translation Studies, Terminology, Interpreting and Applied Linguistics.These are also the main areas of study and research for our undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students.

There is considerable opportunity for staff members and students to participate in research groups, conferences and other activities. The peer-reviewed printed and e-journal LINGUACULTURE is one of our successful projects – to which both outstanding Romanian and international scholars as well as successful MA and PhD graduates have contributed.

The Department of English of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi was set up in 1925 when Iancu (Ioan) Botez (1872-1947) was appointed professor of English literature and civilization.
