5 ECTs / Semester / Portuguese

This program explores the vast and diversified corpus of the western traditional canon through a selection of works that continue to influence contemporary life. This aims at teaching how to read the world in a critical and plural way. As a theoretical-practical discipline within the framework of subjects that provide additional education in the B.A. in Social and Cultural Communication, the program provides a general formative role in the preparation of future professionals working in the fields of media and cultural relations in conveying a cultural framework. The course aims at fostering the critical competences of reading and interpreting texts, promoting not only interdisciplinary relations and historical, social, political, literary and cultural contextualization, but also the development of competences in argumentation and in oral and written expression.
