We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Dutch & Flemish Languages & Literature equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse and understand the history, development and usage of the Dutch languages, as well as their representation and interpretation in literature.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Dutch Studies, and Dutch & Flemish Culture. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Languages and Literature, or Cultural Studies.
The Dutch language area comprises a vast geographical area including the Netherlands, Belgium, South Africa and the Caribbean. As such, there are a great deal of literary writers, traditions and movements which postgraduates may reflect upon, including shifting cultural identities, practices and beliefs.
For example, you may wish to analyse classical Dutch literature of the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century and its influence on modern society. Alternatively, you might take a more contemporary approach, scrutinising Dutch creoles such as Afrikaans, or observe the literary movements which opposed cultural movements such as the Apartheid.
Careers may include roles in academia and publishing, as well as popular research on behalf of museums, or even roles in the media.
