Afrikaans is presented at undergraduate level over three years. Afrikaans language and literature is presented, and it is also possible to learn Dutch and to study Dutch literature. On honours level a student can do courses in Afrikaans and/or Dutch language and literature.
A course for people who do not use Afrikaans as their first language is also offered on first year's level.
Several specialists in the Department can guide students at master’s and doctoral level in different fields, including media and cultural studies, creative writing, Afrikaans grammar, linguistics and applied grammar, Afrikaans literature, literature theory and aspects of Afrikaans culture.
