The Department of Humanities is responsible for the academic organisation of the degree programme in Humanities, the official Master’s degree in Arts and Cultural Management and Doctorate in Humanities.
The department also encompasses a team of professors of Thought and Ethics, who teach subjects which cut across all the degree courses at the University.
The different branches of the department (philosophy, literature, art, history, geography, etc.) boast widely different lines of research. This activity, combined with the interminable labour undertaken by staff to revise and improve the material used in class, ensures that the teaching standard is of an extremely high level.
The Department of Humanities attracts graduates, postgraduates and research fellows from a wide range of geographical and academic backgrounds, looking for:
A humanistic complement to degrees which are business or science-based.
Development of the personal skills needed to work in communication or human relations.
Incorporation of an essential area of Journalism Studies.
Involvement in the multidisciplinary research into humanities (music and cinema, and literature).
