Course content

The European Languages and Cultures master's programme trains students to be cultural mediators (translators, administrators, editors, etc.) by providing knowledge and skills in a modern or classical language and culture. Students choose one of the following specialties:

  • Classical philology
  • English language and literature
  • French language and literature
  • German language and literature
  • Russian and Slavic philology
  • Scandinavian languages and literature
  • Spanish language and literature

Classes in the speciality module are taught in the respective language (with the exception of Classical philology, in which the language of instruction is Estonian). That is, if you are specialising in English language and literature, your classes are in English, but if you are specialising in French language and literature, they are in French and so on. At the time of admission to the programme, being proficient in the language of the chosen specialty is expected and written as well as spoken language skills are to be demonstrated in the entrance exams (the essay is written and the interview conducted in the language of the speciality).

Students can combine elective courses and practical training module according to specific future career paths. For example, somebody who wants to work in an international organisation can pick an elective module in international relations and do an internship in an international organisation; somebody who wants to become an editor in a publishing house can pick an elective module in translation studies and do editing training. Graduates will be ready to continue their studies in PhD programmes in all languages of specialisation.
