Spanish Culture and European Identity

The master's degree program Spanish Culture and European Identity / Cultura y pensamiento europeo: tradición y pervivencia was developed in cooperation with the Universidad de León. It is a bi-national degree program that is unique in both Germany and Spain in terms of its specific combination of Romance studies, Spanish studies and European intellectual history. Students gain extensive knowledge of the origins and dissemination of Spanish and European culture, from their roots in antiquity to the indelible influences of the Christian, Jewish and Arabic cultures of the Middle Ages up to its dissemination in Latin America.

During the integrated year abroad in León, students not only expand their academic knowledge but also acquire significant intercultural competences. Graduates of this degree program receive a double degree. The program is directed at graduates from a bachelor's degree program in Romance Studies with focus on Hispanic Studies or in Latin American and Ancient American Studies.

Possible lines of work:

Research management, education (e.g. adult education at universities, language courses at adult education centers, educational/vocational institutes (Bildungswerke), etc.), book industry (publishing/ libraries/ translating/editing), culture (cultural institutions, cultural management, embassies, Goethe Institutes, cultural institutes, regional cultural work, exhibitions, etc.), media/journalism (press, radio, television, on-line media, public relations), administration (international relations, e.g. diplomatic service, EU institutions, international organizations), teaching in the German public school system, academia (research management, teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
