Description

Advertisement

This MA offers separate programmes in the literatures of English, French, German and Italian. In all cases it is possible to combine a disciplinary with an interdisciplinary approach.

The focus is on medieval, early modern and modern literature for English and French, on early modern literature for Italian and on modern literature for German. You will have the option to take an interdisciplinary approach, exploring for instance the relation between different media, between literature and philosophy, or between literature and history. The one-year programme is closely connected to the MA in Media Studies, the Comparative Literature and Literary Theory specialisation, and the MA in American Studies.
