Profile of the programme
This degree programme is divided into two tracks, Linguistics and Applied Linguistics and Literary and Cultural Studies. Each student chooses one track and the focus of their studies is in that track. All students must complete three compulsory courses. The remainder of the programme consists of compulsory options that students choose based on the track they have chosen. The student then writes a Master's thesis based on the track and relevant coursework. With the exception of some courses in translation, all teaching, coursework and exams in this degree programme are carried out in the English language.
