The Undergraduate Degree in Modern Languages is presented as an innovative alternative to the traditional approach of philology degrees at the Spanish university. The innovation is given by the program's multidisciplinary approach and the education in three foreign languages in which one reaches different levels: in the main or major A language (English for non-native students of this language and Spanish for non-Spanish speakers), the student will reach a level of knowledge similar to native, while in the complementary or minor B language (German, French, English / FL or Spanish /FL), the student will reach a level of proficiency, and in the C language (German, French or Chinese), the student will reach an instrumental level.
The combination of a multilingual education with a multidisciplinary approach enables the student to become an intercultural and linguistic mediator in international organizations, business environments, cultural institutions and educational contexts.
The multidisciplinary element is achieved thanks to the flexibility of a curriculum that allows the choice of the elective subjects of Literature, Economics and business, Language and communication, Humanities (Art, Geography and History, Politics and society) and New technologies.
Internationalization, a key element of the degree, is present both in the profile of students and professors, as well as in the contents of the subjects (such as International Management, International Relations, The European Union, among others), and in the possibility of carrying out an international academic stay in any of the foreign universities with which the University maintains exchange agreements. We recommend carrying out this stay in the third year in order to take full advantage of it, once part of the basic and compulsory content has been completed and education has begun in languages B and C.
Education in the Undergraduate Degree in Modern Languages opens the doors to a wide range of professional possibilities, from teaching of foreign languages, linguistic and cultural consultancy, cultural tourism, communication, publishing, international relations, the international business environment and intercultural and linguistic mediation.Read less
