Three learning pathways

The curriculum is divided into three learning pathways. Each learning pathway focuses on the relationship between theory (what you learn in class) and practice (how to put what you've learned into practice). You can therefore apply the knowledge you've gained immediately.

1. The Language and linguistics pathway

This learning pathway lets you take a huge leap in the development of your language skills. Your written language skills will reach academic Master's degree level. For instance, you'll learn how to write a clear essay. You will also delves into the specific perspective that linguists at Master's degree level have on language, and how that relates to your everyday practice.

2. The Literature and Culture learning pathway
You'll deepen your existing knowledge of literature, literary history and literary studies. Besides offering interesting lectures, this learning pathway involves actively analysing literary texts but also how to use them in class, and how to teach literature generally, including how to devise effective testing.
