Bachelor's degree in Catalan Language and Literature

Presentation

Coneix el Grau de Llengua i Literatura Catalanes

The aim of the UAB's Bachelor's Degree in Catalan Language and Literature is to provide training in this discipline of the Humanities. It includes the synchronic and diachronic study of the Catalan language and the historical and critical study of Catalan literature.

The degree also supplies the necessary instruments for students to go on to apply the knowledge acquired in the professional sphere: in teaching, linguistic planning and consultancy, management of multilingualism, linguistic integration of immigrants, the information society, ICT, literary heritage management, or publishing.

You will gain a broad scientific and methodological base that is multidisciplinary, versatile and humanistic, and which will enable them to conduct research and create knowledge in the field of Catalan language and literature. You will be able to draw on their education to make valuable contributions to today's complex and profoundly evolving society.

Within the degree programme, you can opt to follow a specialisation track, in either Catalan Language, Catalan Literature, Comparative Literature or Linguistics.
