The Dutch language has 23 million speakers in the Netherlands and Flanders alone. Dutch is one of the medium-sized languages of Europe and is becoming a popular subject of studies both internationally and in Germany.
The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg offers a master´s program in Dutch literature and Dutch linguistics – exclusively in Dutch. Students who already completed their bachelor´s degree will find a master´s program that meets their individual learning needs.
Because choice matters, the German system allows students to concentrate on either language or literary sciences. Choosing modules from both disciplines is of course also possible.
No matter whether you choose literature or linguistics as your future field of expertise, all courses provide a learning environment of small groups and excellent mentoring. The teaching style focuses on current research and enables students to get actively involved in ongoing research (research profiles of the two chairs)
In both literature and linguistics, we consider close ties with universities in the Netherlands and Belgium to be of great importance. Students are therefore encouraged to study abroad. To make your study experience in the Netherlands and Belgium easier for you, credit points from partner universities are readily accepted. You can choose from excellent universities in Amsterdam, Ghent, Groningen, Leiden and Leuven.
