Literature, Visual Culture and Film Studies is a two-year, interdisciplinary Master’s programme that is run in collaboration with Tallinn University. Students engage in the broad interdisciplinary study of the relationship between literature, visual culture and film in contemporary and historical contexts. Our seminar-led courses foster an active debating and discussing environment, through which students gain cutting-edge theoretical insights into intermedial aesthetics and into the philosophy of literature, art and film. The programme collaborates with major international literary, art and film festivals in Tallinn, giving students ample opportunities to acquire practical skills. Our individual approach to students provides a supportive learning environment and offers them the opportunity to follow personal research interests from the very beginning.

The Master’s programme in Literature, Visual Culture and Film Studies seeks students from all over the world and from all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The diverse cultural backgrounds of the students contribute to the spirit of comparative cultural study. The programme is ideal for those who are interested in exploring the relationship between words, still and moving images, both historically as well as in contemporary culture. Upon completion of theLiterature, Visual Culture and Film Studies programme, students have been equipped with critical tools for cultural analysis of contemporary image and text-based media. Students also acquire various practical skills – such as analytical and problem solving skills, writing and presentation skills – that enhance their employment opportunities and prepare them for different career pathways. This research-centred programme also prepares students for further studies at the PhD level.
