What is the Spanish translation for study

German-Spanish Studies / Estudios Hispano-Alemanes B.A.


Bachelor of Arts

Study structure

The German-Spanish studies are an undergraduate, integrated, binational bachelor's degree that was jointly developed by the Universidad Regensburg and Universidad Complutense Madrid. The interdisciplinary orientation is already integrated into the course. The DSS therefore do not provide for a combination with another subject.

The study program is divided into four academic years. The first two years of study are spent at the partner university in Madrid.
An internship is completed after the second year of study.

The course is completed after 8 semesters of standard study time, and both universities award the graduates with a diploma that is officially recognized in both Germany and Spain.
