Description: The Doctoral Programme in Languages, literatures, cultures and its applications comes from the combination of several programmes that co-exist at the moment: Languages and Literatures, of the UVEG; Language, Literature, Culture and its Applications to the Valencian Context, of the UVEG; Translation and Society of Knowledge, of the UVEG; and Languages and Technology, of the UPV. The fusion of these programmes comes from the desire of offering to future doctors the confluence ok knowledge of the two universities involved. The Master’s Degrees in Languages and technology (coming from a doctoral programme with Quality Award in 2007 in the UPV), in Research in Languages and Literatures, in Linguistic advice and literary culture applied to the Valencian context and in Creative and Humanistic Translation, which has provided doctoral students to the programmes mentioned above, will foreseeably nourish to those which are so far integrated, being expected application forms from other humanistic fields and even from technical degrees.
