English has long established itself as a lingua franca at international business, political and cultural arena, hence its importance has never been wasted in recent years. Quite the contrary, knowledge of English has become a matter of survival in today’s world. Accordingly, the role of English language philologists has been granted vital importance in the process of cultural, political and economic homogenization between the nations of the civilized world. The English language is particularly important for Georgia as the country is seeking closer partnership with states whose major communication language is English; hence the knowledge of English could be decisive in many respects, be it cultural, social, economic or political spheres. At an individual level mastering English could mean better educational opportunities, higher chances of employment nationally, as well as internationally. In a broader, national sense, knowledge of English by wider population could mean improved conditions for integration with the civilized world. The field of English philology is quite broad and embraces the study of the English language and Anglo-American literature, culture, philosophy of language, and language teaching aspects. Thus, the profile of an English philologist definitely presupposes fostering linguistic and cultural awareness. This is in line with the mission of International Black Sea University which aims at enhancing cross-cultural understanding and support communication between the nations. Undoubtedly, MA English Philology Programme will help to create international environment at International Black Sea University, and thinking more globally, will contribute to nurturing responsible citizens with correct perceptions of the modern world....
