Curriculum

The curriculum indicates the subjects for the degree and their nature (basic, required, electives, etc.), the number of credits for each subject, etc. Topics are divided into subjects, which in turn are organized into modules. In addition, it includes practical information for the student's academic life.

  • Module I: General Humanistic and Sociological Training

    The University of Navarra is aware that studying the arts and humanities requires an in-depth analysis of the humanist tradition of our culture and the age-old questions of philosophy. This tradition provides students with a thorough preparation for coping with a professional world in which qualities such as a comprehensive vision, creativity and intellectual flexibility, which are all closely linked to the traditional values of a humanist, are gaining increasing importance. As well as these qualities, being skilled in the use of foreign languages, information technologies, etc., and having a broad perspective of the career opportunities offered by the current "knowledge society" are also important.

  • Module II: Language Training

    This module is made up of the common obligatory content relating to the subjects specific to linguistics. It has 48 ECTS credits, which comprise 20% of the total. As specified in the white paper, it covers the theory and practice of Spanish, the rules and usage, and synchrony and diachrony of the language.

    This module, which is taught starting in the Second Year, comprises three subjects: General Linguistics and Discourse Analysis, Spanish Language and the History of the Spanish Language.

  • Module III: Literary Training

    This module is made up of the common obligatory content relating to the subjects specific to Spanish Literature and Literary Theory. It comprises 48 ECTS credits, which constitute 20% of the total. As specified in the white paper, this module covers the historical and philological study of the key stages, movements, authors and literary works of Spanish literature. It is taught starting in the Second Year and is made up of two subjects: Spanish Literature and Literary Theory.

  • Module IV: Specific Training in Other Languages and Their Literature

    This consists of 24 ECTS credits (10% of the degree program's total) and focuses on the culture of contemporary society in light of two distinct factors: classical antiquity as the foundation of Western civilization, and modern languages and civilizations as a definition of the present and the future outlook.

    This module is taught in the First and Second Years and is divided into two subjects: The Classical World and the Modern World.

  • Module V: Supplementary and Professional Training

    This module consists of 48 ECTS credits, which constitute 20% of the degree program's total. One of the outstanding features of the proposed curriculum is the degree of autonomy given to students; this allows them to specialize in a particular professional field, as long as it falls within the general characteristics of the degree program's training. Once the necessary basic skills have been acquired, this specialization process can be undertaken in the final two years through the range of elective subjects available.

    The module's combination of a humanistic perspective and a practical orientation enables students to address the different areas of the modern world (business, culture, international relations, etc.) as a whole. This orientation in relation to the labor market is provided in the second cycle and takes the form of several pathways, which can make up areas of specialist study.

  • Module VI: Final Year Project

    This enhances the development of certain interdisciplinary skills (analysis, synthesis, written expression, etc.) while encouraging the overall development of the skills specific to the degree program. The project will focus on a topic related to Spanish philology. Students will receive guidance from a professor on the degree program who will oversee their work; this professor will be appointed by the degree program coordinator. The project will be assessed by a committee made up of three professors on the degree program. In order to encourage student mobility initiatives, the project may be undertaken at any other university or institution where the student carries out activity, subject to authorization from the academic tutor and degree program coordinator. The project must be presented and assessed at the University of Navarra in accordance with the corresponding regulations established in this area.
