The Applied Foreign Language (LEA) undergraduate degree is one of the founding programs of the Faculty of Human Sciences.
A national pioneer in the university provision of this field of study, the LEA degree contains an international transdisciplinary vocation and remains innovative and relevant to an increasingly complex employment market demanding professionals able to produce multidisciplinary, integral and rigorous responses based on solid scientific and ethical grounds.
Aggregating the learnings of different Faculties, the multidisciplinary degree program rests on three fundamental pillars:
- Learning languages and their complex cultural frameworks;
- Theoretical reflection on cultural, juridical and economic contexts within ever more globalised societies;
- Knowledge of the most functional type and able to orient students towards diverse labour contexts (geographically and culturally diversified) in which they develop specialised professional practices.
Why choose Translation?
This specialisation seeks to train translators in various different areas and for equally different markets, whether companies, translation agencies, publishers or international entities.
In addition to deepening Portuguese language competences and the thorough development of English, students gains the opportunity to advance in a second foreign language, choosing from among Spanish, French and German, and combining this with familiarisation with the cultural frameworks to the aforementioned languages.
