International Cultural Studies - Structured

This is a multidisciplinary and comparative research programme designed for students with an interest in contemporary literatures and media, who do not want to limit themselves to a specific national literature and philology. Cultural artefacts and events will be studied in broader transnational perspectives.

Entry requirements

An MA or first class honors BA in the areas of Literature, Film Studies, Languages, European Studies, or Philosophy. Candidates should have good reading skills in at least one additional language other than English. Exceptions can be made for students who learn an additional language as part of the taught modules component during the four years of their programme.
