Literary studies deals with the theories and methods of literary studies, with the history of literature in its course, text analysis and interpretation, with literature and non-literary text types and the area of ??literature and other media.

The subject of regional studies is the social and cultural conditions of the francophone-speaking areas (e.g. geography, history, politics, philosophy, art, everyday and regional cultures, media, social systems). The regional studies modules are usually offered in French.
