Bachelor's Degree in English and Catalan Studies

Graduates in English and Catalan Studies will be capable of combining expert knowledge in both Catalan and English, today's de facto international language. 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 English and/or Catalan and cultural mediation, as well as in highly qualified business, tourist and other cultural professions, etc.

This degree offers students the possibility to enrol in a specialisation in Linguistics, Comparative Literature or a third language (German, Italian, Galician or Basque).

The degree is programmed by the Departments of English and German and of Catalan, making it an ideal setting for the organisation of this type of interdisciplinary studies.

Career options

- Teaching and the production of didactic materials in both public and private institutions.
- Translation and interpreting; multilingual institutional communication in companies, publishing houses, libraries and language departments.
- Language technology applications.

Once you have completed your studies, you will have solid training in the Catalan and English languages, literatures and cultures. The degree thus will provide students with expert knowledge in Catalan and in today's most important international language, which will facilitate entering the labour market in any of the sectors related to language or multilingualism in any of the European Union member state, such as language, cultural mediation or management, etc.

"An unforgettable experience. To have the opportunity to learn two languages you like and that are very useful for your professional future is incredibly compensating. As Basil Lanneau Gildersleeve said: 'It is astonishing how much enjoyment one can get out of a language that one understands imperfectly'."
