Double Degree with Universidad Nacional del Litoral

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 Universidad Nacional del Litoral (Santa Fe - Argentina).

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;
  • Licenciatura en Letras from the Universidad Nacional de Litoral.

Ca' Foscari students based in Argentina may be able to obtain scholarships or reimbursements, based on the availability of funding.
