This exclusive Bachelor's Degree provides comprehensive training in language, literature and culture that allows students to specialize in one of the many profiles of the current multilingual and multicultural environment. The degree focuses on three foreign languages and their cultures. After three academic years of general education, students can choose from a wide range of electives to specialize according to their own interests.
These three elective itineraries are:
1) international relations and international trade;
2) computational linguistics and linguistics applied to the teaching of foreign languages;
3) translation. This last itinerary is completed entirely at the University of Essex, where students are able to obtain an MA Translation, Interpreting and Subtitling from the that institution, simultaneously, which allows the graduate to conclude his/her studies with a double degree.
The Bachelor's Degree in Applied Modern Languages allows its graduates to work in multilingual and multicultural environments in the public and private sectors, both in Spain and in other countries. Specifically, the proposed sectors are: language teaching, communication, publishing, cultural industries, linguistic and cultural consultancy, cultural tourism, HR language policy and planning, international relations, linguistic and cultural translation and mediation, and language technology.
In the 21st century, modern applied language studies are increasingly needed and, in the international university field, it is one of the fastest growing fields of study in the Humanities. As globalization expands, there is a growing demand for people with intercultural communication skills who can engage linguistically with a wide audience. A Bachelor's degree in this field offers a competitive advantage to language teachers, interpreters, publishers and people who want to work with language in increasingly technological, multilingual and multicultural societies.Leer +
The Bachelor's Degree in Applied Modern Languages arises from the need to research new forms of intercultural or interlinguistic communication in professional fields, applying ethnolinguistic, descriptive and focused observation methodologies that allow a better understanding of social, cultural and linguistic phenomena and factors (pragmatic, grammatical, lexical, among others) that intervene in the communicative processes between people, in the man/machine interaction, and in its application to linguistic engineering.
In addition, all students can optionally study for a Diploma in Chinese Language and Culture accredited by the Center for Language Education and Cooperation of the Ministry of Education, which enhances the already high employability of this Bachelor's Degree.Read Less
