About Literature, Visual Culture and Film Studies at Tallinn University

We are looking for students whose interests are not limited to one of the traditional discipline in the humanities, but who are interested in exploring the relationship between words, still and moving images both historically as well as in contemporary culture.

During the 2-year programme the MA students is expected to actively participate in seminars, to engage in field-related practice and to write a Master’s thesis. Throughout the first 2 semesters, the student attends numerous courses and seminars with the goal of fine-tuning the theme that will be developed in the MA dissertation. During the 2nd and 3rd semester the student engages in practical work organised by the school in collaboration with international literary, art and film festivals in Tallinn. At the beginning of the 3rd semester, MA researchers are required to submit a research proposal and choose a supervisor. The last semester is reserved for writing the thesis in the framework of the master’s seminar guidelines. 
The thesis is publicly defended at the end of the last semester. 

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.
