The academic staff of the Department of Languages, Literature and Communication study European languages and cultures. The Department has a special focus on linguistics and language use, and how people communicate by using language. In addition, the literature of the Middle Ages, the early modern and the modern period is studied. The (Dutch-taught) Bachelor's programme in Celtic languages and cultures is unique in the Netherlands, as well as the (Dutch-taught) Master's programmes in translating, intercultural communication and Renaissance studies.
