What will I learn?

In the BA degree course in Romance Studies, students deal with the languages, literature and cultures of the Romance countries. Students hone their language skills, including listening, reading, oral and writing skills. Students will be qualified to analyse the development and current functioning of languages (linguistics) and to adequately examine literary periods, currents, genres, authors and works (literary studies). Furthermore, students will acquire a profound and differentiated knowledge of the cultural aspects of Romance linguistic areas (cultural studies). Courses including practical experience will point out possible career options for students and prepare them for their future career in the best possible way.

Which career opportunities do I have?

Graduates in Romance Studies can choose from a broad range of occupations, including: research and science at universities and other non-university institutions, international organisations, culture management, media work and PR, publishing and journalism, advertisement, further education and training, translation and mediation, tourism.

Why Salzburg?

At the Department of Romance Studies at the University of Salzburg, students can study the languages, literature and cultures of the French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish speech areas - both European and non-European. As distinct from many other courses in Romance Studies, students in Salzburg acquire knowledge of and competences in two of the named speech areas with nearly equal emphasis. Salzburg is also especially attractive due to its excellent student-to-staff ratio and the large number of Erasmus partnerships.
