Overview

The BA course in Netherlandic Studies aims to train professionals in Dutch language, as well as Dutch/Flemish literature, culture and history, who are able to use this language on an advanced level, both in writing and speaking (level C1) and use it in their professions. Moreover, they gain in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge of Dutch literature, culture and history. The three-year BA program does not provide teaching qualifications.
This program is recommended to applicants who are interested in languages, literature, translation, cultural studies, media, intercultural communication and cultural diplomacy. It is especially recommended to those, who are interested in studying the Dutch language, cultures and literatures on academic level.

This program enables students to learn the Dutch language on a professional level, use it in academic writing, as well as everyday oral argumentation in a scholarly and business environment. Students will thus attain the foundations of academic research, evaluation and critical thinking in literature, Dutch and Flemish socio-political history, and develop an understanding of the linguistic levels of description and analysis of Dutch (phonology and syntax).

Strength of program
The BA program in Netherlandic Studies aims to provide the fundaments (language, linguistic, literary and cultural studies) necessary for the philological study of The Netherlands and the Flemish part of Belgium to its graduates. Our program results in graduates with not only proficiency in the Dutch language, but also a familiarity with the societies and cultures of the countries where Dutch is spoken as the first language. Our graduates will be familiar with fields and methods of academic research and will be able to meet the requirements of the MA course.
The Department participates in several high-profile international research networks and projects (DCC, CELSA, PETRA-E, Eastbound-CODL). Students acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills that can be utilised in both private and public-sector establishments.
• Level of language proficiency corresponds to C1 level (proficiency) of CEFR. Language of instruction in the courses is Dutch (with the exception of the translation and interpretation courses, where Hungarian is also used).
• Students are eligible for admission to MA programs.
