This European, American and Postcolonial Language and Literature degree allows you to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the languages, literatures, and cultures of specific European, American or postcolonial contexts thanks to multiple study paths that allow a focus on French, German, Iberian, American, Slavic or Balkan studies.
You develop both an advanced knowledge of the literary history and culture of your chosen focal region while simultaneously strengthening your skills in one of the languages that you study. As a result of collaborations with foreign universities that even allow you to obtain a joint/double degree, the program is markedly international in nature.
