The French Master’s programme aims to give a high level of knowledge in French language, literature and culture. We offer specialised courses in linguistic and literary topics, and provide extensive training in oral and written use of modern French.

The supervised master’s thesis allows you to pursue in-depth investigation and analysis within your chosen area of linguistics or literary studies. The Master’s programme also aims to engage you in on-going research at the Department and to help you develop a critical and independent attitude to problems and methods of the subject disciplines.

Currently, we research how language is used to describe and explain climate change, and how our understanding of the phenomenon determines the way we act, both at a societal and at an individual level.

The Department has a strong focus on the didactics of foreign languages and is continually seeking to optimise its learning environment. We practice teaching and research across languages and disciplines, and benefit from many international students and staff members. We have an informal relationship between staff and students and you are welcome to knock on doors should you have questions.

The master’s programme seeks to cultivate a critical approach to information, and an ability to critically and creatively analyse complex issues. These abilities are fundamental to a functioning democracy.

Career

The importance of French language skills will increase, as the number of French speakers worldwide is expected to multiply manifold during the 21st century.

Fluency in French language and its cultures is of great relevance if you want to work in:

  • international organisations
  • research
  • art and education
  • media
  • commerce
  • tourism

A French master’s degree guarantees a certain amount of experience in independent research. A master’s degree implies extensive training in the interpretation and production of texts. The study of foreign languages contributes to the development of a greater capacity for intercultural communication. All these are transferrable skills, useful in a great variety of professional and social settings.

72 % of alumni with a master’s degree from the Faculty of Humanities say that they have found relevant work within two years of graduating.

You can continue in academic research by pursuing a PhD.
