The Doctoral Program in Literature and Cultural Studies is characterized by an emphasis on literary studies from different methodological and linguistic perspectives, with an openness towards cultural analysis. Among the previous programs that are part of this new proposal are the Theory of Literature and Comparative Literature, originally linked to a Mundus Master, and the Study and Annotation of Spanish Literary Texts. Likewise, other programs are incorporated that are registered in the fields of Latin, Greek, Italian, French, Galician, Portuguese and German philology.PresentationThe objective is to consolidate a competitive program at a Spanish and international level, based on a long and successful previous career in the specific field of literary studies and cultural analysis. The Program intends, on the other hand, to consolidate an intense commitment to internationalization that benefits the training of students and the research competitiveness of the USC.

Other master's degrees or DEAs in the field of Humanities and Social Sciences, which, in the opinion of the academic committee, do not require additional training.As regards the performance of training activities, once admission to the doctoral program has been achieved, the accreditation of certain language levels may be required to carry them out. It will be necessary to document a B2 level in order to be eligible to participate in the Hermes Seminar.
The academic committee will decide, at the time of accepting the admission of new students, to whom they need additional training. Students from the field of social sciences and, in all probability, those who could apply for admission with training in other fields are foreseeably in such a situation. Applicants from the field of humanities and, of course, those who had completed the master's degrees to which direct access is recognized will not need any additional training. The specific training supplements will be taken from the common subjects of the Master in Literature and Culture Studies.AdmissionScores for each merit will be assessed by the commissions as follows:Academic record: 55%
