The programme aims to provide you with academic skills and approaches that will prepare you to operate as a cultural expert in wherever texts are involved: in the private sphere, in the media, in institutions and networks. You learn to analyse these processes and functions, to solve problems and to communicate about them clearly and with flair.
European Literatures and Cultures is international in scope, studying cultural processes in and between multiple languages, in the past and in the present. Each course builds on a theoretical foundation, but at the same time trains you in a range of practical skills for doing research, including reporting to academic as well as non-academic audiences.
