Director of Language Dept. and of the Degree in Modern Languages.
Convinced of the necessity in the professional world today for a high level of communicative competence in foreign languages, the Language Department of the Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM) has designed a truly innovative degree in modern languages which places a strong emphasis on international work placements during the four-year degree course.
Our principal objective is to develop in our students a high level of communicative competence in two foreign languages (English-German or Engish-French) as well as foster an in-depth knowledge base of the respective cultures and their socio-economic and historical backgrounds. Another priority of the degree is the development of a strong ethical and human value based perspective so as to further ensure optimal opportunities in the labour market. The Degree offers two itineraries or branches: language and international communication, and foreign language teaching and learning.
We also have a firm commitment to the internationalisation of our students through exchange programmes with various nations and continents as well as through direct cooperative agreements with prestigious partner universities.
