Degree programme specification

Would you aim to improve your proficiency in interpretation of French text?

The Master in French Literature and Linguistics is specifically designed for you ! after the bachelor programme, which is a large introduction to French literature and practical language, greater importance is given in the Master’s programme to various applications of theoretical aspects of French philology, both in linguistics and literature. Stress is put on the textual dimension of studies and text interpretation : in that way, the Master's programme conveys knowledge of descriptive and analytical methods, extremely useful in contemporary times. Students are also expected to acquire the skills for independent and interdisciplinary scientific work.
