BA Studies

In the first year of studies, students become familiar with various fields of study through a wide selection of introductory courses in literature, history, linguistics, and languages (Spanish, Portuguese or Catalan). In the second year, with the help of our academic advisors, students choose from a variety of courses in history and/or literature. The third year of the degree program includes advanced courses which deepen the knowledge and skills that students have acquired during the first two years of their degree studies and become highly proficient in Spanish, Portuguese and/or Catalan.
