Master’s Programme in Literature with a Specialization in Latin Literature, 120 credits

About this education

Within the specialization in Latin Literature you will develop advanced analytical and interpretive skills for the study of literature. You will gain a deeper understanding of Latin literature from Antiquity to the Middle Ages and learn to use advanced methods for the exploration of literary texts, both in terms of form and in terms of their relation to history, politics and ethics. The theoretical level of the courses is high; at the same time, you will develop practical skills related to analyzing literary works. As a student in the Master’s Programme in Literature you will have access to a large selection of courses in Latin and in the wider Humanities. A combination of compulsory and individually chosen courses will develop your knowledge and skills in this area, forming the basis for the writing of a strong scholarly Master’s Thesis. Giving an international and transnational perspective, the Programme qualifies the students for doctoral studies in Latin and in literature, but is also useful for work outside of the university. This is especially the case in fields where there is a demand for knowledge about the significance of language for communication and social development, and which require an international outlook, historical competence and the ability to deal with complex information in a systematic and critical fashion.
