Course Details

In Semester 1, you are trained in theoretical approaches and research methods, and in the acquisition or development of a third language ("subtexts").

Semester 2 is devoted to the study of literature and the arts, and in particular to the interactions between different textual and artistic practices ("texts").

Semester 3 opens out to the wider question of the relations between the arts and other aspects of society: history, culture, politics, language ("contexts").

Semester 4 is chiefly devoted to the writing of the final dissertation; the teaching modules are more specialised, and reflect the area of expertise of each institution.

The table below presents per semester and per institution the course modules which make up the overall programme.
