Academic, scientific or professional interest:

The Degree in Catalan Studies provides an in-depth knowledge of the Catalan language and its literature, as well as the different disciplines that study these fields (such as linguistics, sociolinguistics or literature theory). Thus, graduates will be professionals who are capable of meeting modern society’s communicative needs, as a direct result of the development of a critical conscience and finely tuned analytical skills.

Worth Noting:

This degree is the only one that provides a specialised teaching of the Valencian Country’s native language, which is also official in other Spanish and European territories. In order to promote entrance in different areas of the workforce, the degree includes compulsory external internships that allow the student to come into contact with fields such as editing, language guidance, etc. From the third academic year onwards, the student can choose between expanding their training in Catalan Studies, via degree-specific optional subjects, or improving their knowledge of a second language by taking a minor programme. A minor is a set of 30 optional credits, granted to students of a second language who have previously taken classes counting for 12 basic training credits. All Catalan Studies students take Spanish and Catalan, as they are compulsory subjects, and even if they don’t take a minor programme, they must study a second language (Arabic, Basque, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Russian).
