The Department of Frisian Language and Culture has a long history at the University of Groningen. Recently, it has gone through a transformation process that embeds Frisian studies in international, comparative research towards minorities and multilingualism. A cross-disciplinary approach enables the Department to offer bachelor and master programmes and to host a research group with a broader focus on ethnolinguistic minorities and multilingualism.
Minorities and Multilingualism
Studying diversity in language and culture
Benefiting from the natural Frisian laboratory of multilingualism, our BA and MA students learn how to study, how to manage, and how to enjoy cultural and linguistic diversity.
