Access Requirements
Applicants should meet one of the following criteria: With a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and Literary Studies from a Flemish university, students have direct access to the master's programme. Students who have not obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and Literary Studies from a Flemish university may be accepted onto the programme on the condition that they have obtained at least 48 ECTS credits in Linguistics and Literary Studies for every language they wish to major in. Exception: for the 'Multilingual Mediation and Communication' profile, applicants need to have obtained at least 48 ECTS credits in English Linguistics and Literary Studies but only 30 ECTS credits (or mother tongue level) in the second language of their choice. Students who do not meet the previous two conditions are admitted to the programme when they have successfully completed a tailor-made preparatory programme consisting of BA modules in Linguistics and Literary Studies. All students who have obtained a Bachelor's degree from a non-Flemish university will be contacted for a compulsory intake interview. This interview is conducted via Skype and takes approximately 15 minutes.
Description
The Master's programme offers you the possibility to conduct independent and creative research on a linguistic or literary topic of your choice in a stimulating multilingual and urban environment. Your research activities will be supervised by an internationally renowned expert in his or her field. The Department of Linguistics and Literary Studies contains two research centres, the Centre for Literature, Intermediality, and Culture (CLIC) and the Centre for Linguistics (CLIN).
