The heart of Romance languages

Degree programme objectives

The degree in Catalan Language and Literature is the entrance to the countries where Catalan is spoken. Through these studies, students can acquire knowledge about the Catalan language, culture and literature, at the same time that get the capacity of establishing connections between Catalonia, its language and literature, with the rest of the Romance languages and literatures. Apart from the lessons on practical language and specialized linguistic disciplines like phonetics, phonology, morphology and syntax, students receive courses on culture, reality and literature of the Catalan-speaking countries, i.e. Catalonia, Valencia, eastern Aragon, Andorra, Balearic islands and Alghero.

The degree cultivates both language skills and skills required in the fields of communication and communication technology, in translation or in government, and develops analytical skills, autonomy and creativity. By systematic training in the combination of practical language, professional linguistics and literature students will also learn the basic principles of standard written and oral expression in Catalan and Czech.
