Bachelor's degree in French and Spanish Studies
As from academic year 2016-2017, first-year places on these studies will no longer be offered.
The Bachelor's Degree in French and Spanish Studies offers a solid training in the French and Spanish language, literature and culture. It is a combination of expert knowledge in two Romance languages, French and Spanish. This facilitates entering the workforce in any profession related to languages and multilingualism in any country of the European Union, such as the teaching of French and/or Spanish and cultural mediation, tourism, etc.
The enlargement of the European Union and globalisation represents an exponential increase in multilingual communication and, therefore, there is the need to define new communication strategies which facilitate to the maximum the efforts made in language learning and training. The technological processes also require new multilingual tools with which to manage the flow of both written and audiovisual documents. There is thus an ever growing need for language-related professionals in a variety of sectors. Professionals such as these cannot limit themselves to mastering only one foreign language given that socially there is a need for all professional tasks related to languages to be carried out by polyglots.
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.
The ideal student for this degree should have the following qualities:
- Good written and oral expression
- Capacity for synthesis and comprehension
- Instrumental fluency in the languages of the degree
- Capacity for interpretation and reasoning
- Interest in language, literature and culture in general
- Capacity to relate linguistic, literary and cultural phenomena
Future graduates will have acquired solid training in the French and Catalan languages, literatures and cultures. This will facilitate entering the labour market in any of the sectors related to language or multilingualism in any of the European Union member states, such as language teaching, cultural mediation, access to highly qualified posts in businesses, and sectors related to tourist activities, cultural exchanges, etc.
