On a programme that lasts 3 years, allows the learner access to the expertise of all our Literature staff. Our courses cover a range of topics, everything from Shakespeare to e-humanities… everything to inspire the next generation of teachers, writers and readers.
Whether you choose to study for the entire degree or are coming to the VU University as an exchange student, we know that you will enjoy our courses that are creative, exciting and groundbreaking!
The Department of Literature & Culture at VU University Amsterdam has a vibrant history of nearly 80 years. With more than 15 members of staff and 5 PhD-students, we offer a world-class environment for learning and research where your professor knows your name, and where you can start doing research from your first year. Ever since it was founded in 1880, VU University Amsterdam has been known for its distinctive approach to knowledge. VU is an open organization, strongly linked to people and our divers society. What matters is not just the acquisition of a greater depth of knowledge, but also a wider one. We ask and expect our students, researchers, PhD candidates and employees to look further – to look further than their own interests and their own field, and further than what is familiar and further than the here and now.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us,
Prof. dr. Ben Peperkamp,
Head of the Department Language, Literature & Communication
