This is what our students say
Our own students know better than anyone why the study programme Literary Studies is a good choice. Below you can read why they chose this programme and what makes it so unique.
If you want to adequately analyse a literary work, you definitely have to be able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. You have to think a lot and train yourself to understand the perspectives of others. At Literary studies you learn this.
