Triple specialization in a multilingual and multicultural environment

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.

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 Confucius Institute of Madrid, which enhances the already high employability of this Bachelor's Degree.

Career Opportunities

The profile that the Bachelor's Degree in Applied Modern Languages aims to create is that of a bilingual professional with multilingual communicative competence, to work in business and institutional environments, specialized in international relations, communication, tourism, management and marketing, or as a professor for those who have the vocation to teach.

Some notable career opportunities are:

  • Linguistic technology.
  • Language teaching.
  • Translation and mediation.
  • International relations.

Within the field of research, Nebrija University seeks to train students in research that requires linguistic technology: corpus linguistics and applied linguistics. In the branch of language teaching, students will be trained in the latest teaching methodologies and technological resources that will make a difference in their education. If the Modern Languages student is going to enter the teaching field, he or she will have to be trained as a teacher from the Bachelor's degree. Within the field of translation and mediation, Nebrija University's Bachelor's Degree in Applied Modern Languages wants to offer students the tools they will use at a professional level, such as a translator's portfolio, and train them in areas such as intercultural mediation and, also very important, audiovisual translation and subtitling, since they are part of the digital present. This is the case of the large video game sector, for example, which is currently looking for a large number of video game language testers. Finally, the branch in international relations, which allows the student to focus their education on human rights, the contemporary world and the different international agencies and organizations.

Employability recognized in the Rankings

The commitment of Nebrija University to the academic requirement, training in leading companies and institutions, innovation in multidisciplinary programs and international projection, places the University in the top positions of the most important rankings.

The International Ranking QS Stars awards Nebrija University the maximum score in the quality and satisfaction of students in teaching, employability of the graduates and the internationalization of the institution.

The national rankings also recognize Nebrija University as the first Spanish university in teaching and second in employability, highlighting its performance in research, knowledge transfer and internationalization.

Development of Professional Competences

The Bologna Declaration formalized the principles on which the European Higher Education Area should be based: quality, mobility, diversity, competitiveness and employment growth.

From this, Nebrija stands as an academic model of reference, educating students with excellent individual behavior, interaction with their environment and motivated by and for constant and continuous training. The Nebrija Institute of Professional Skills works every day to achieve the differentiation of our students through the development of attitudes and skills.

The main objective is for students to achieve the best of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources through personal self-knowledge.

In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked on within the three seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication skills and negotiation, indispensable for our students to know how to transmit ideas, to argue them, to provide information and opinions in an adequate, clear and convincing way.

Within what will be their work performance, other aspects such as teamwork, conflict resolution and project management ability will be worked on.

In the third block, skills worked on are those aimed at increasing the student's employability. They will work with tools and techniques for job searching, and perform tasks that achieve in the student a greater use of their personal skills.

For all this we have currently active experts in selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training and professionals dedicated to the world of communication and the arts.

In this way, and in a complementary way to his/her specific training, we help the student create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which he/she will be immersed when he/she finishes his/her studies.
