Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will be able to reflect on and apply literary, theatrical, and cultural theories, from the classical tradition up to the present. This also encompasses transdisciplinary theories, as reflected in texts and text genres, including digital texts. They will be able to contextualise literature and theatre within their theoretical and historico-cultural context. Graduates will have the skills to cognitively and communicatively function at an optimal level in contexts related to international literary and theatre studies. They will possess the theoretical and critical knowledge in regard to the theatrical event as well as the capacity to conduct research on the most important developments in European theatre. Finally, graduates will have a solid understanding of all aspects relevant to the history of Hispanic literatures and will be capable of analysing and interpreting texts belonging to that literary tradition.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
