Course overview

This course offers you an enriched and transversal interdisciplinary training that covers advanced skills in the linguistic, literature, cultural, historic, artistic and territorial fields, complete with economic-social issues and territorial science in the public and private sectors. On one hand, we provide you with in-depth knowledge in different literary fields, according to historical perspectives and opinions that can trigger comparative studies. On the other hand, we also develop skills and knowledge in the field of linguistic-cultural intermediation on a local and international scale, as well as management skills in the tourism industry with disciplines designed to encourage critical skills for the operation and planning of tourism systems and the local/global market of tourism.
