What is the 'Master of Linguistics and Literature' all about?

The programme emphasises the academic study of English in all its aspects, ranging from the theoretical and historical study of the English language and literature to creative mastery of the living language, both spoken and written. The curriculum combines theoretical courses with seminars - and is designed to develop your academic skills and communicative ability.

Benefiting from the research and expertise of English scholars at the Faculty of Arts, students from both Belgium and abroad live and study in a vibrant international atmosphere and further master both their proficiency in English and their methodological, critical-theoretical, and heuristic skills.

Our team of internationally -renowned experts will prepare you for a career in communications, intercultural relations, education, translation, linguistics, and research, not to mention the avenues offered in the vast media sector.

Objectives

The main goal of the programme is to broaden and deepen students' knowledge of English linguistics and literature, both in its theoretical aspects and its applications. The overall aim of the programme is to train highly proficient students of English to investigate and situate relevant linguistic and literary research topics in an autonomous way and to communicate their findings and insights effectively.

This aim implies an excellent command of English as a prerequisite for research and scientific communication. It also implies a good grasp of research procedures, including systematic training in methodology and experience in sustained research, e.g. through the writing of an MA dissertation under the supervision of qualified staff member.

Building on BA degrees in languages and literatures (including English), the programme emphasises the development of a sound theoretical and methodological framework, the ability to take part in critical debates about data and research findings, and the stimulation of independent thinking.

Career perspectives

Combined with a teacher-training certificate, this degree offers a strong qualification for graduates who wish to teach English in secondary or higher education. Graduates are thoroughly familiar with leading contemporary research in a particular field of English linguistics or literary criticism and are thus perfectly equipped for research at a higher level (PhD programmes / research projects, etc.). Graduates also develop the communicative skills required to report, both orally and in writing, on research findings and insights. Those skills can be used in a broad range of professional contexts where the ability to digest, synthesise, and present complex phenomena is essential.

What is the 'Master in Advanced Studies in Linguistics' all about?

De Master of Arts in Advanced Studies in Linguistics is directed to students who want to acquire research competencies in linguistics. In this interuniversity, third cycle programme, internationally renowned researchers from the University of Leuven and the University of Ghent collaborate to initiate students into advanced linguistic research. At the University of Leuven two specializations are offered: Cognitive and Functional Linguistics and Multilingual Language Learning and Teaching. Students put together an individual programme from background courses and specialization courses, which will enable them to develop theoretical insight and methodological and analytical expertise. In function of their own research interests, they can choose to follow intensive courses taught by international scholars or to do an internship in one of the many research groups at the universities of Leuven and Ghent. Special attention goes to the writing up of research results and participation in the international scientific debate. 

Objectives

The programme aims to provide those who acquired a general knowledge of linguistics in their undergraduate education with the professional and creative skills required to carry out research, emphasizing sound methodological foundations for identifying and analyzing linguistic patterns, a sense of precise and systematic language description and the ability to develop theory and criticize it.

By the end of the programme, students will have acquired:

  • not simply a reproductive encyclopedic knowledge of the subdomains of linguistics, but also an active understanding of how the organisation of and relationships between subdomains can differ depending on the theoretical approach;
  • skills in reading and evaluating scholarly work in the cognitive and functional traditions.

Career Perspectives

Graduates are thoroughly familiar with leading contemporary research in a particular field of linguistics and are thus well-equipped for research at a higher level (PhD programmes / research projects, etc.). Graduates also develop the communicative skills required to report, both orally and in writing, on research findings and insights. Those skills can be used in a broad range of professional contexts where the ability to understand, synthesise, and present complex phenomena is essential.

Studying Linguistics and Literary Studies in Brussels

Linguistics and literary studies are among the most fascinating studies, especially in a city like Brussels where more languages are spoken than anywhere else in Flanders, Belgium or Europe. A Master’s student in linguistics and literary Studies gets access to other languages and cultures which opens up new horizons of understanding. Our multilingual Master's programme prepares students for a globalized labour market where multilingualism is increasingly becoming a necessity. The internationally oriented city of Brussels is the perfect location to personally experience the diverse aspects of multilingualism and multiculturalism.

6 Languages to choose from

Our Master’s programme offers you the unique possibility to take courses in linguistics and literary studies in up to six different languages and to specialise in one specific language-related scientific discipline and in one or two specific languages.

The programme of the Multilingual Master contains courses in the following languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The programme is built up of three components: the required courses, the choice for one language or two languages, and a multilingual profile.

Curriculum

Required courses (24 ECTS)

There are two required study components: the Master’s thesis (20 ECTS) in one of the chosen languages, and an English taught course in Research Methodology (Linguistics or Literary Studies, 4 ECTS).

One language (18 ECTS) or two languages (24 ECTS)

Depending on your Bachelor’s or undergraduate degree, you will be able to specialise in one language (18 ECTS or 3 courses) or in two languages (twice 12 ECTS or twice 2 courses).

A multilingual profile (18 or 12 ECTS)

The remaining 12 or 18 ECTS will be spent on the profile of your choice. All profiles are composed of courses in different languages. There are five possibilities:

• Linguistics

• Literary Studies

• Multilingualism and Foreign Language Acquisition

• Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics

• Theatre Studies

• Interpretation

• Translation

The value of research

Our Master's programme offers you the possibility to conduct independent and creative research on a linguistic or literary topic of your choice in a stimulating multilingual andurban environment. Your research activities will be supervised by an internationally renowned expert in his or her field.

The Department of Linguistics and Literary Studies contains two research centres, the Centre for Literature, Intermediality, and Culture (CLIC) and the Centre for Linguistics (CLIN).

CLIC offers an interdisciplinary forum for specialists in literature, theater, dance and film (PhD students, researchers, assistants and teaching staff). Under the umbrella of "the experiment" it groups research on texts and aesthetics which in a boundary-crossing manner explores the possibilities to represent and stage reality. The different artistic media (literature, theater, film, etc.) in this research are considered laboratories for a reflection on the relationship between reality and the imagination.

Application requirements

Applicants are eligible for the programme if they have a min. 180ECTS bachelor in the field of linguistics and literary studies. .

Additionally, in order to be admitted, you need to be proficient in English.
