Program description

The programme offers a wide array of courses in language and literature, taught in French by renowned academic staff with a broad international network.

The one-year programme is offered jointly with the University of Amsterdam, the University of Utrecht and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. This three-way cooperation has resulted in a wide range of complementary courses, giving you access to an unprecedented number of linguistic and literary specialisations in one single master's programme. In the linguistic field, Leiden excels in syntax and semantics, and it is fairly unique that in the literature lectures all periods of French literature are covered. As a student, you will profit from the distinctive expertise and eminent international reputation of the staff, as well as from its broad international network. The monodisciplinary character of the programme guarantees that you will acquire a high level of linguistic skills and specific knowledge of the French language, literature and culture.
