Catalan Studies (MLS3058)

30 credits

Catalan Studies has been designed as a continuation of either your second year Catalan module or your experience in a Catalan-speaking country during the year-abroad. This is a blended course that combines both language and content tuition to an equal extent. The programme has been designed to enhance your Catalan language skills from an intermediate to a more advanced level as well as to provide you with an overview of the different aspects that comprise the curriculum of Catalan Cultural Studies. Through a sequence of seminars about Catalan history, literature, arts, sociolinguistics, popular traditions, media or current affairs, students will gain an insight into the complexities of a fascinating society like the Catalan one and will be able to explore further some of its unique cultural manifestations.
