A course of Cinematographic Language Theory and Audiovisual Translation is also proposed due to the interest that this discipline can have in school teaching.

In addition, the course of Theory of cinematographic language and Audiovisual Translation is proposed for the interest that this discipline covers the scope of school teaching.

The major Teaching two languages allows you to specialize in teaching two languageschoosing from the following combinations:
