Writing, Editing and Mediating (track)

What makes a text a good or captivating text? How do you recognize repetitions, inconsistencies, faulty logic and other problems in texts? What does it take to guide a text from writer to reader?

Working with texts in a professional setting involves a special set of skills. The Writing, Editing and Mediating Master's track (often abbreviated to WEM), offers students a choice of courses that focus on non-fiction writing for specific audiences, the history of texts in their various forms (from manuscript to digital book), proof-reading and correcting English texts, and producing texts for publication. Topics addressed include censorship, copyright, scholarly editions, critical theory and social issues in contemporary literature.Students on the course typically have a BA in English or in an Anglophone culture (e.g. American Studies). Some students with other humanities qualifications and a sufficient level of academic English are accepted by the admissions board.The one-year Master's track in Writing, Editing and Mediating (WEM) is a track within the Master's degree in Literary Studies and is run by the Department of English Language and Culture. It is taught and assessed wholly in English.

European Literatures and Cultures (track)
English Literature and Culture (track)

Literary study is socially relevant: from the medieval to the modern, it maps the forces which divide and unite people. English is the global language of cultural exchange and experiment.

The themes of conflict and co-operation are at the core of the Master's track in English Literature and Culture, a programme that allows students a broad choice from a range of modules drawing on the full historical and geographical sweep of literatures in English.It is a key tenet of the track that the academic study of English literature can be used to reflect on the ways that people - as individuals and as groups - interact with one another, and that it provides a catalyst for insight into contemporary social debates. Literature captures the separation and the solidarity of its writers and audiences in a manner particular to itself: it is a multidisciplinary practice that is as various as the texts it studies. The programme's core themes of conflict and co-operation are linked to sustainable society, a research priority of the university.For more information see: Department of English Language & Culture.

    Freelance editor at EditUp

    Lees verder

    After I graduated, I wanted to gain experience and get even better at what I like doing best: writing and editing. I registered with the Chamber of Commerce and started working as a freelance editor at my own editing business 'EditUp', where I write, translate and edit academic and publicity texts for various clients. I work in Dutch and English for both digital and print media. I also have a part-time job as a content editor at Oberst BV.

    The knowledge that I acquired in the Master's track in Writing, Editing and Mediating has proven indispensable in both my jobs. I chose this track because of my passion for the English language and literature, and because I wanted to become an editor. The programme enables you to study interesting literature while at the same time training you in the field of editing. It taught me to write and edit, and also to support my writing and editing choices with relevant theories. I can now use this knowledge and these skills to justify my texts to my clients. The opportunity to gain practical experience in a placement gives the programme great added value. I was given the opportunity to do an internship at the Marketing, Communication and Sales department of Dutch National Opera & Ballet. I was responsible for writing, editing and translating texts such as biographies, flyers, interviews and articles for the magazine Odeon and the internal personnel magazine.

    The combination of academic and practical perspectives will help you translate your knowledge and understanding to the labour market. In my view, this is the strength of this Master's track!
