Course content

This MA programme is an excellent choice if you are keen to build on your love of languages and cultures and would enjoy the freedom to explore a research topic of your own choice. You could take inspiration from your own experiences or draw upon the breadth of expertise in the Department when selecting a topic. Previous topics range widely from an exploration of literary works centred on the German Democratic Republic, to an analysis of the role of nation and language in constructing a pan-Catalan identity.

The MA is an excellent pathway to doctoral research and facilitates the development of high-level skills in independent thinking, research, and communication, which are crucial qualities in many professions.
You will choose three taught modules from the fascinating range available in the Department of Languages and Cultures and related departments within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. All modules are taught in English with tuition predominantly in small groups.
