Linguistics: Language, Literature and Education
The Master's in Language, Literature and Education responds to educational needs in our contemporary multilingual society, where specialised knowledge of more than one culture or language is increasingly important. The programme is designed for students who wish to pursue advanced studies in one of the major European languages from an acquisitional, pragmatic, and educational perspective. It provides you with knowledge and skills in the fields of institutional language learning and cultural education, and prepares you for enrolment in a grade-one teacher qualification programme. We offer specialisations in the following languages and literatures: English, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian, Slavonic, and Spanish.
Language, Literature and Education is a career-oriented programme that prepares you for a job in education through courses such as 'Cultural Literacies' and 'L2 in the Classroom' that help you explore how literature can be mobilised for educative purposes. It has strong ties with the Teacher Training programme: once you complete your specialisation, you can apply to the Graduate School of Child Development and Education's post-Master teacher training programme in order to obtain a grade-one teacher qualification in the language of your choice.

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme of study. Its aim is to facilitate the recognition of study periods undertaken by mobile students through the transfer of credits.
