Literary Studies Specialisations
The Leiden University Master’s programme in Literary Studies offers separate programmes in the literatures of English, French, German and Italian. The focus lies on medieval, early modern and modern literature for English and French, on early modern literature for Italian and on modern literature for German. In all cases it is possible to combine a disciplinary with an interdisciplinary approach. This may relate to the relation between different media, between literature and philosophy, or between literature and history.The one-year MA is closely connected to the MA in Media Studies, the Comparative Literature and Literary Theory specialisation, and the MA in American Studies.
The MA courses are given by scholars with expertise in terms of the period (middle ages, early modern, modern, post-modern and post-colonial) but also in terms of rhetoric, semiotics, intermediality, inter-cultural history and cultural analysis.
Particularly in the case of the German and Italian specialisations, it is possible to follow courses elsewhere in the Netherlands. The one-year MA is closely connected to the MA in Media Studies, the Comparative Literature and Literary Theory specialisation, and the MA in American Studies.
