Linguistics and literary studies are among the most fascinating studies, especially in a city like Brussels where more languages are spoken than anywhere else in Flanders, Belgium or Europe. A Master’s student in linguistics and literary Studies gets access to other languages and cultures which opens up new horizons of understanding. Our multilingual Master’s programme prepares students for a globalized labour market where multilingualism is increasingly becoming a necessity. The internationally oriented city of Brussels is the perfect location to personally experience the diverse aspects of multilingualism and multiculturalism.
Our Master’s programme offers you the unique possibility to take courses in linguistics and literary studies in up to six different languages and to specialise in one specific language-related scientific discipline and in one or two specific languages.
The programme of the Multilingual Master contains courses in the following languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The programme is built up of three components:
Required courses (24 ECTS)
There are two required study components: the Master’s thesis (20 ECTS) in one of the chosen languages, and an English taught course in Research Methodology (Linguistics or Literary Studies, 4 ECTS).
The choice for one language (18 ECTS) or two languages (24 ECTS)
Depending on your Bachelor’s or undergraduate degree, you will be able to specialise in one language (18 ECTS or 3 courses) or in two languages (twice 12 ECTS or twice 2 courses).
A multilingual profile (18 or 12 ECTS)
The remaining 12 or 18 ECTS will be spent on the profile of your choice. All profiles are composed of courses in different languages. There are five possibilities:
• Literary Studies
• Multilingualism and Foreign Language Acquisition
• Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics
• Theatre Studies
