Literary Studies: Literature, Culture and Society
The Master's in Literature, Culture and Society has a unique focus on the ways in which contemporary literature, culture, and society are interlinked and inform and influence each other. You can specialise in English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Scandinavian, Slavic, or Spanish studies, thus significantly enhancing your language skills as well as your expertise in literary and cultural analysis to prepare you for professions in cultural industries or education, among others. For students interested in Modern Greek literature, culture, and society, the English language specialisation programme offers the possibility to follow a course in this area.
The aim of the programme is for you to become an expert at analysing and querying how literature and culture respond to wider socio-political issues, and how, on the other hand, society may be affected and impacted by literary and cultural products. You will develop key skills in researching and writing about literary studies, specifically in reporting on the dynamics of the interplay and interface between literature and society. You will take courses in your target language and significantly improve your language skills while enhancing your expertise regarding a particular language region.
