Courses are offered from a typological and cross-linguistic angle, often starting from a particular language area and then branching out to gain a better perspective of the range of variation across the European languages, and a better understanding of the theoretical and typological issues involved.

In addition to the range of course units provided by this track itself, students can also follow Masterlanguage courses. Masterlanguage is a national programme that offers courses for students of i.a. German, English, French and Italian. The courses are taught in the target language (except Greek and Latin) and are jointly organized by lecturers from Radboud University, the University of Groningen, Leiden University, Utrecht University, the University of Amsterdam and VU University Amsterdam. More information about the courses, entry requirements and registration can be found on the Masterlanguage website: www.masterlanguage.nl. You may follow Masterlanguage courses in consultation with the Board of Examiners of your Master's degree programme.
