The content of the Institute of Spanish Language and Literatures is available in Spanish.
The Institute of Hispanic Languages and Literatures of the University of Bern consists of two sections: one for Linguistics and one for Literature. The Linguistics section is the only one in Switzerland that focuses on Synchronic Linguistics. The Literature section offers a wide range of courses and seminars covering Spanish and Latin American literatures in their various generic forms, with a special focus on Modernity (19th-21st centuries).
Of average size, the institute welcomes about a hundred students, which guarantees them good support throughout their academic career. Beyond their main focuses, both sections encourage interdisciplinarity and strive to provide students with a comprehensive education that will enable them to develop transversal skills that can be used in an increasingly demanding job market.
