Master of Arts allows students to further explore two disciplines studied at the Bachelor level. Students may choose elective modules consisting of a number of courses and seminars. They must also write a dissertation related to their primary area of study and take required course modules.



Master’s students are encouraged to go on exchange, if possible for a single semester, given the duration of the programme. Students may go on exchange regardless of how many credits they have completed at the Faculty. Under regulations, students may earn no more than 24 credits (or 2 out of 5 modules in the Master of Arts) while on exchange. The dissertation cannot be substituted.

Unlike other fields of study, Arts degrees are not geared toward a specific career and graduates generally need to gain additional experience on the job.

Job opportunities may be found in the following areas: teaching, journalism, radio, television, publishing, libraries, documentation centres, archives, bookshops, museums, heritage protection organisations, international organisations, diplomacy, private companies, banks, administration, staff management, tourism, public relations, cultural activities, art dealerships, galleries, and literary, linguistic or philosophical research and writing, etc.
