What will I learn?

In the BA degree course in Romance Studies (Spanish), students deal with the Spanish language and literature as well as the cultural aspects of the Spanish speech area. Students hone their language skills, including listening, reading, oral and writing skills. Students will be qualified to analyse the development and current functioning of the Spanish language (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 the Spanish linguistic area (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?

Being the largest of the Romance languages, with about 400 million speakers Spanish ranges among the most widespread languages of the world. In a globalized world, experts are needed who organise the understanding and the exchange between cultures. Graduates of the BA degree course 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 Spanish language, literature and culture, but also those of the French, Italian and Portuguese 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 and international partnerships (for example, with Barcelona, Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia, and also Mexico and Nicaragua).
