Year 2 consists of:
- Specialisation courses
- Course accompanying the specialisation
- Language specialisation course
- Electives (you will have to obtain 60 EC in your programme)
In the fold-outs below you will find an overview of all the compulsory courses in year 2. Refer to the Course Planner for an overview of the compulsory courses that are part of the Celtic Languages and Culture programme. Are you planning to do an internship in your third year or would you like to study abroad for a while? In that case it is best to start planning in your second year.
Did you start before 2019? Then check the Celtic Languages and Culture Education and Examination Regulations to see which courses you will have to take.
Make sure to register in time!
Some courses have limited space and have a shorter course registration period. So to be safe, it is best to register in time for your specialisation and the corresponding courses.
A specialisation is a selection of 4 related courses. The Celtic Languages and Culture programme offers 2 specialisations:
- Language contact and language change in Celtic
- Interpretation and reinterpretation of Medieval Celtic texts
If you wish to add courses from another specialisation to your programme, you may do so as electives. Your specialisation prepares you for your final paper, which you will write in your 3rd year. The subject of your final paper will be in line with your specialisation.
In addition to your specialisation you choose a course that relates to your specialisation. Which course this is, depends on the specialisation you choose. In the fold-outs below you can see the courses you can choose from.
In year 2 or 3 you choose one of the following language specialisation courses (7.5 EC at level 2 or 3):
- Old English and Medieval Languages (even years)
- Modern Irish (odd years) or Modern Welsh (even years)
- Latin: Medieval Universal Language
In year 2 you take your first elective courses. As electives (your optional course profile), you choose components with a total study load of 60 EC. You can start with a minor, do an internship, go abroad or choose from a broad range of available courses. Make sure to check each course's entry requirements.
