Study Options for Master Students
At LCE, we support students with an interest in interdisciplinary research.
If you want to pursue a thesis related to our topics, enroll in our Master (MA) elective courses, join our teaching events (such as writing workshops or book hacks), or get involved in our MA network. We also have an open repository of digital teaching materials which we use in our courses.
Elective MA courses
We provide students consultation on which courses from the electives would be suitable to develop their interest at the beginning of their master's studies. For these interdisciplinary projects, a pool of expert supervisors and examiners are available. Please contact Sarah Margrethe Øverlie Eiene for further information.

MA Study Group
The LCE Study Group is an offer for master students who want to exchange thoughts, ideas, and literary experiences with fellow students.
The LCE MA Network is a place where students can meet and discuss topics relevant for LCE, and support each other in the process of writing term papers and theses. Get in touch with Stijn Vervaet if you wish to participate.
What students say about LCE courses
"My experience with this course was eye-opening. (…) Reading certain parts of the curriculum resembled the reading of one’s favourite philosophers all anew, creating a completely new perspective of how the arts might be perceived."
– Matias Keyson Buestad about the LIT4310 course by Alexandra Effe and Olivia Fialho.
