The role of literary texts and images in society

Are you inspired by stories? Stories can move us deeply and connect us with others.

During the Master's programme in Literary Studies, you will explore the world of stories by looking at questions such as: How do you analyse stories? What functions do they serve? And how do you learn to read them? You will look at how stories are told through literary texts, paintings, music and films. You will also learn how the publishing business works and about the role of literary criticism. 

You can choose from two specialisations:
English Literature in a Visual Culture (English)
Nederlandse letterkunde en het literaire veld (Dutch)

The Master's programme in Literary Studies teaches you to look critically at literary expressions. This includes text and images in books, as well as other expressions such as film. You can interpret these expressions in different ways, for example by analysing them within a social context: a certain period of time, a geographical region or a political situation. This programme gives you the tools to master various methods of literary analysis.
