University of Innsbruck


The Master’s Degree Programme in Romance Studies consists of three parts:

  • a deepening of language proficiency in one of the three languages offered (French, Italian, Spanish);
  • Romance studies beyond language acquisition, in particular linguistics, literature and culture studies, and
  • an elective module where students may pick courses offered in other Master’s degree programmes.

For the latter, electives at the Faculty of Language, Literature and Culture are of particular interest.

Please note: the language of instruction for this programme is German.
