Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will possess specific competences in literature and linguistics. They will be able to not only trace the historical evolution of linguistic phenomena, situating them in their respective spatiotemporal and cultural contexts, but also to understand and expand basic areas of applied linguistics, and effectively apply scientific methodology in different types of linguistic study. In the field of literature, they will be able to make original and creative contributions to the study of cultural and literary texts. They will be capable of interpreting defining features of foreign culture and will have an in-depth knowledge of literary, artistic, and historical data from a comparative perspective, incorporating this knowledge into the communication of contextualised situations.


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.
