Double Degree with Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo
The Double Degree in Iberian and Ibero-American Studies (Doble titulación en Estudios Ibéricos e Iberoamericanos) is a new Master's Degree jointly created by Ca' Foscari University of Venice and the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Vitória, ES - Brazil).
The Double Degree offers students from both institutions the possibility of carrying out an international course of study by attending one part at the home University and another (one semester, equivalent to 30 ECTS credits) at the host University.
Students who attend this programme write a dissertation under co-supervision from instructors from both Universities; the thesis discussion can be held in either location. At the end of the course of study students will have attained a double title:
- Master's Degree in European, American and Post-Colonial Languages and Literatures (specialising in Iberian Studies), from Ca' Foscari University of Venice;
- Mestrado em Letras (Program de Pós-Graduação em Letras) from the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo.
Ca' Foscari students based in Brazil may be able to obtain scholarships or reimbursements, based on the availability of funding.
At Ca’ Foscari University of Venice the programme is open to students who have successfully completed their first year of a Master's degree in European, American and Post-Colonial Languages and Literatures (LLEAP).
Students who intend on applying for this degree programme must have a satisfactory level of Portuguese or Spanish (C level under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
