Description

Advertisement

The PhD Programme is organized into two main subject areas, which incorporate languages, language science, literature and culture within numerous scientific and cultural projects:

  • Modern Languages, Cultures and Societies,
  • Linguistics.

The Modern Languages, Cultures and Societies curriculum is aimed at the advanced study of languages and cultures of modern societies, based on the communication between complex cultural systems, and examined through the analysis and interpretation of literary and cultural texts in a foreign language. This essential tool in gaining a deep understanding of all cultures and traditions is applied from both a specific and a comparative angle.

The Linguistics curriculum is aimed at the development of theoretical critical thinking that is suitable for facing specialized research themes and issues in linguistic theory, language education, linguistics of various languages (including Sign Language), applied linguistics, computational linguistics, synchronic and diachronic language theory, and foreign language teaching.
