The purpose of this minor is to provide basic training in Galician language and literature, with specific attention on its history, culture and language, and offering a contrastive vision in relation to other languages and cultures of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as to help students acquire linguistic, literary, historical and cultural skills and competences with the aim of being efficiently prepared to confront professional and academic environments (institutional, commercial, etc.) in which Galician is essential and indispensable. Upon completing the minor, students will have adequate knowledge of the Galician language so as to take part in a variety of communication situations. Students will be able to analyse their evolution from a social perspective, and will become familiar with and understand the main factors marking the evolution of the Galician literary system.
