The research Master's programme in Historical, Literary and Cultural Studies underscores the theoretical and methodological aspects of the humanities in order to contribute to academic depth, interdisciplinarity and future flexibility that extends beyond a single field. The programme will prepare you to conduct original research in which you consider complex problems with a multidisciplinary outlook. It’s an indispensable stepping stone for students wanting to pursue an academic career as many of our graduates go on to become PhD candidates.
- Art and Visual Culture: The specialisation in Art and Visual Culture studies the relationship between art, the past and the present from various angles, including the interpretation of the cultural contexts of visual expressions and their transformations throughout the ages up to now.
- Literary Studies: Literary Studies will teach you how to approach historical and contemporary texts from an international perspective, as well as how to examine the current societal significance of literature. By the end of the specialisation, you’ll be able to discuss literary texts and scholarly approaches.
- Historical Studies: This specialisation brings historians together with literary, art and cultural scientists to construct critical histories of both the past and the present. We recognise that historical enquiry has important transformative potential on not just our ideas about the past but also on present day societies.
