- “Applied” knowledge and understanding: the student will acquire the methodologies required to understand, in an historical and comparative perspective, complex texts of a certain length and implicit meanings;
- Autonomy of judgment: the student must know how to collect and interpret cultural, historical, geographical and anthropological data useful to orally argue and write relevant texts in the chosen address;
- Communication skills: at the end of the course the student must have acquired the ability to express and argue about the teaching contents both in written and oral form in Spanish;
- Learning skills: students must have developed sufficient self-learning skills to take a conscious approach to the world of work or to the continuation of their studies.
