About us

Welcome to the official website of MCSU English Students’ Association (ESA) / Koło Naukowe Anglistów UMCS (KNA)

The ESA/KNA is an association run by and for the students of the English Department at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, Poland. We are dedicated to creating a valuable experience for students at MCSU, inside and outside of the English Department, through opportunities that will help improve their academic, social, and professional skills.

We foster community through organizing academic conferences and other memorable events and provide editing experience and publication opportunities through our open-access peer-reviewed academic journal New Horizons in English Studies. We also assist various community initiatives through fundraising and other involvement opportunities.

The ESA/KNA is a great way to get involved on campus, gain some volunteer experience for your resume, and meet new people. Our members are the wonderful people who volunteer their time, enthusiasm, energy, and creativity, to help make our events the successes they always are.
