Bachelor's Degree in English and French Studies
The Bachelor's Degree in English and French Studies offers a solid training in the French and English language, literature and culture. The degree thus offers students the possibility to master two official languages of the European Union. This facilitates entering the workforce in any profession related to languages in any country of the European Union, such as the teaching of English and/or French, cultural mediation and management, etc. Students will also be able to participate in exchange programmes with other European universities through the Erasmus programme, Spanish universities through the Sicue programme and with other universities through the UAB Programme.
Students can also choose to specialise and acquire knowledge in a third language (German, Italian, Galician or Basque), which can help expand their professional horizon, or continue with more specialised courses in linguistics, literature and culture.
The UAB is the only university in Spain to offer combined language study degrees which provide students with advanced skills in two languages and their literature. Therefore, this combined degree represents a step forward in the field of language studies and at the same time the commitment to bring our degrees closer to academic programmes available in universities abroad.

- Good written and oral expression
