Mare nostrum, nostra res – The Mediterranean, our world in miniature.
Students gain a thorough insight into the most important literary theories they will use when interpreting specific literary texts. Within other required and elective courses, the students focus on Modern Greek, Romance (French, Italian, Spanish) or Arabic language and respective literatures. According to the type of study they study either one major language and literature, or one major and one minor language.
Emphasis is on the ability of independent complex analysis of the literary text, on the continuous deepening of the cultural-historical knowledge, which enables the students to find and interpret the broader literary and historical context, and on acquiring advanced language competences in selected Mediterranean language.
The programme is open for graduates of the Bachelor’s degree programme with a focus on philological-literary area studies.
Within the Master’s degree study programmes offered in the Czech Republic, Mediterranean Studies programme is unique in terms of conception and focus.
Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan.
Courses in modern Greek and Arabic are held by teachers from the Department of Classical Studies, courses in Romance languages take place together with the students of Bachelor’s programme of the Department of Romance Languages and Literature.
Graduates from this study programme will be qualified for jobs appropriate to the Master’s degree – in libraries, museums, information and education centres, and cultural foundations; considering practically oriented language skills, they will also be qualified for jobs in cultural or foreign affairs companies and administrative departments, or in media. Thanks to the high level of language skills and good knowledge of cultural characteristics of the region, graduates will also be able to work in the market sector, e.g. in tourism or as a mediator of business contacts with the Mediterranean.
Success on the labour market may vary depending on the language studied within the curriculum and also on the programme type.
