Dutch Studies (MA programme)

Dutch Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University (UAM) – a new programme – is open to students with a Bachelor's degree in Dutch philology, but also to those with other degrees who have a good command of the Dutch language (the language of Rembrandt, Mata Hari, Audrey Hepburn, Ruud van Nistelrooy).

Take your master’s degree in Poznań!

The programme includes both academic and practical elements. Apart from expanding your knowledge of the Dutch language and trying your hand at academic research (e.g. as part of a master’s seminar), as students of Poznań Dutch Studies you will be able to develop your language skills at an advanced academic level. Although we do not train translators of literature or interpreters, in our language classes we develop the skills needed for various professions. Classes are taught by lecturers who are native speakers of Dutch (from the Netherlands and Belgium) as well as Polish teachers of Dutch. Among our staff we have many people who have combined their Dutch studies with other specialities, for example art history, psychology, English, German, Slavic studies, architecture, etc. With this, our students receive a high-quality academic education, plus a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach from the lecturers. Classes in literary translation are taught by an experienced translator of Dutch literature into Polish. We also cooperate with businesses, which is a requirement of modern university education today. With excellent contacts with Dutch and Flemish entrepreneurs, we can offer unique classes on Dutch and Flemish business in Poland. Students from the Poznań Dutch studies meet businesspersons who represent subsidiaries of big corporations, family businesses, manufacturing and trading companies. Our guests talk about their experiences of investing and working in Poland, but students are also hosted by companies outside of Poznań. The programme of the new Dutch Studies (see below) takes into account the fact that the majority of students are engaged in professional work. Therefore, we adjust both the number of teaching hours and the forms of delivery to the expectations of our students.
