Short description
MA students engage in a thorough training in the Spanish language, literature and culture. The MA program concludes with the preparation and successful defence of a thesis.

During the training students will

gain knowledge of contemporary questions in research on Spanish literature (history of literature from medieval times up until the present, Hispanic literature, etc.);
obtain practice in scientific literature analysis;
acquaint themselves with the methodology of literary research;
gain experience in research;
learn about the various techniques of Spanish text composition;
improve their oral skills;
get a deeper understanding of linguistics, study current fields of linguistic research (e.g., simultaneous linguistics, language history, descriptive linguistics, textual linguistics, lexicology, phraseology, sociolinguistics, etc.);
gain experience in translation.
The aim of this course is to train high-level specialists capable of meeting the specific demands of the labour market in the fields of cultural and intercultural exchange. In addition to local, national or international authorities in the public sector, it is important to underline the growing need for Spanish graduates in the private sector, e.g. with multinational companies.

The training will also prepare students to continue in one of the Doctoral Schools of the Faculty.

Our graduates find employment mainly in the sectors of education and research, tourism management, banking and finance, and intercultural communications.

Our graduates finish the program with a high level of Spanish knowledge. Many of them work as language teachers in language schools, as editors or literary translators, others find employment in the tourism industry, media and marketing, in governmental institutions or ministries, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Foreign Trade, and in international companies.
