Studieprogramma

Unsplashed background img 2
opbouw
The Master's in French Literature and Culture programme offers a wide range of topics both literary and cultural.
A range of seminar options are offered, for example on Rabelais, Montaigne, Baudelaire, Proust and Perec, to name a few. Courses are offered on issues in French cultural and linguistic politics and on interdisciplinary issues like plurilingualism, where the study of literature and linguistics comes together.

During your master's you must choose four courses and complete an MA thesis. Two courses of your choice must be taken from French Literature and Culture. For your third course you can choose any course offered from French Literature and Culture or any course offered within the MA Literary Studies.

For your fourth course you have a great deal of flexibility. You can take any course offered from French Literature and Culture, any course within the MA Literary Studies, a course on a literary subject from another MA, a course offered within the MA French Language and Linguistics, or a course offered via Masterlanguage.
