Programme and Learning Outcomes

The study programme Literary Studies - Text in Context is the ideal stepping stone to an academic career in literature or literary studies. During this two-year programme you will learn to approach historical and contemporary texts from an international perspective, examine the societal significance of literature, and discuss current literary issues with other scholars at the highest academic level.

What makes this study programme within the Research Master in Historical, Literary and Cultural Studies so unique is its emphasis on text and its context: issues like regionalism, nationalism and transnationalism in literature are at the core of this programme. Depending on your research ambitions, you can focus on literary studies, literature, or a combination of the two. The research master in Literary Studies offered by Radboud University is the only literary research master in which depth of the (sub) discipline and attention to contemporary literary debates are combined with a broader humanities orientation. This study programme is an excellent preparation for a national or international PhD programme within the field of literary studies.
