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.

How are different cultures created and how do they affect us? Arts and Humanities is an area of interest that includes a wide variety of subjects such as Archaeology, Philosophy, History, Religion, Ethnology, Literature, and Theatre and Performance Studies. In one way or another these subjects are an expression of how culture affects human beings and society. As a student you will improve your analytical skills and learn to identify different lines of development, often in an interdisciplinary context. Studies within Arts and Humanities give you broad general competence that is very useful in the job market, where autonomy, analytical and communication skills are in great demand.
