What will I learn?
In the BA degree course in Romance Studies, students deal with the languages, literature and cultures of the Romance countries. Students hone their language skills, including listening, reading, oral and writing skills. Students will be qualified to analyse the development and current functioning of languages (linguistics) and to adequately examine literary periods, currents, genres, authors and works (literary studies). Furthermore, students will acquire a profound and differentiated knowledge of the cultural aspects of Romance linguistic areas (cultural studies). Courses including practical experience will point out possible career options for students and prepare them for their future career in the best possible way.
