Department of English and American Studies was founded in 1989. At that time, our society was strongly aware of the lack of foreign language skills. The priority of the Department was to prepare a generation of methodically knowledgeable teachers of the English language and literature. Despite the complexity of requirements in this era, the department also constantly tried to maintain the standards of scientific research. Its scientific and research activities developed within the purview of the Department of English and German Studies at the Faculty of Education in Nitra in 1969-1979. In particular, extensive research was performed internationally in the area of contrastive linguistics, comparative studies of literature, communication theory, translation theory and communicative teaching.
