Here's why you want to study this master's at the UvA

Unique combination

Is this programme right for you?

  1. You have basic demonstrable academic knowledge in the field of (theoretical) linguistics and literature, and a substantial amount of credits/academic knowledge related to the field is a prerequisite for admission. 
  2. You have good research skills at Bachelor’s level, and you are able to conduct research independently, such as collecting material, applying theory, and writing a thesis.
  3. You desire to contribute proactively and critically to the academic and interdisciplinary environment within the Graduate School of Humanities, as demonstrated in a convincing motivation letter.
  4. You want an academic backbone for a teaching career. However, this programme does not offer a teaching qualification. For this, you can consider a one-year teacher training programme (in Dutch).
