About this course

Literary and Cultural Analysis is the right programme for students who have an active and broad interest in contemporary culture, literature, and the arts. The programme highlights philosophical, political, and social perspectives on culture.

Literary and Cultural Analysis offers students the intellectual knowledge and skills to interpret and reflect on literature, art, and popular culture. Central to the programme is the hands-on engagement with concrete objects – novels, films, poems, operas, television series, art installations, websites, performances, and so on. The detailed analysis of those objects is combined with wide-ranging philosophical, political, and social approaches of culture and the arts. 

Part time students need to be very flexible with regards to the timetable as the courses will be taught during day time, there are no separate night time courses. Also the time table changes about every eight weeks.
