European Languages, Culture and Society


The School of European Languages, Culture and Society comprises six departments – Dutch, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian and Spanish and Latin American Studies – and several interdepartmental programmes. In any given year, the school teaches 100 Master’s students and 50 graduate research students.

Graduate programmes focus on the literatures, linguistic traditions, history, sociology, philosophy, art, film, and other cultures associated with the languages taught in the school. The school has five principal research themes: visual culture, trauma, crime, borders and the Book, and welcomes research applications in these fields.
