MA Literary Studies: English Literature and Culture

Course Description

Our BA and MA programmes have been rated in 2011 and 2012 as the best in the Netherlands by the two leading university league tables. English Literature and Culture offers an attractive and challenging programme that allows students optimal choice from a range of courses (which changes every year) drawing on the full historical and geographical sweep of literatures in English. Students may also take courses from our other MA programme Writing, Editing, and Mediating.

Our staff have received their doctorates from Dutch universities as well as international institutions including Oxford, Cambridge, Toronto, and Edinburgh. At the same time, students' theses are supervised by researchers whose work is being published and read throughout the English-speaking world.

Note that all our courses are delivered in English and are only suitable for candidates who can comfortably function in English at postgraduate level. This is a full-time course which is the equivalent of 60 ECTS. As such, it typically consists of 4 taught courses and a final thesis of 15-18,000 words.
