English Studies at the Complutense University of Madrid


The Degree in English Studies at the Complutense University of Madrid is a four-year programme managed by the Department of English Studies: Linguistics and Literature, in the Faculty of Philology at the Moncloa campus. The Faculty buildings are equipped with lecture halls, seminar classrooms, laboratories, libraries (general, modern philology, classical philology, Hispanic and Romance philology), computer labs, wifi connection, cafeteria, etc. They also have nearby university sports facilities. Students successfully completing the DES at the UCM have the opportunity of proceeding onto related postdoctoral programmes in English linguistics and literature, at master and PhD level, run by the departments involved. Opportunities for self-development also include a variety of national and international mobility programmes which can be accessed from the early years (ERASMUS, SICUE, etc.), as well as external traineeship programmes available to third and fourth year students.
