02. Academic Information
This Master’s Program offers advanced training in the definition and analysis of the processes of the cultural construction of ideas -including the idea of identity- and its representations in literature, film, theater, and other media. It also addresses issues of reception, translation, and cultural management in the context of the plural and constantly changing cultures that shape today’s world.
The Master's Program aims to offer quality training in the field of literary analysis, in accordance with the cultural reality of our times, marked by the growing contact and exchange between cultures in the context of globalization. It aspires to develop cultural and textual analytical skills, as well as the ability to analyze phenomena of intercultural reception, which are essential for a critical approach to changing plural realities.
The master's degree consists of 60 credits distributed as follows:
12 in compulsory courses: they constitute a common core and offer a complete vision of intercultural and gender studies
12 in compulsory specialty courses: each of the two specialties offers the opportunity for an in-depth analysis of two of the aspects that inform the construction and representation of cultural identities: gender studies (Literature, Gender and Identities) and intercultural studies (Literature, Alterity and Globalization).
24 in optative courses
