On behalf of the teaching and learning community, as well as the administrative and service personnel, I welcome you to the Faculty of Arts of the University of Alicante. In this message, you will find the reasons why I am proud of it.
Our Faculty, which is the seed of this excellent university, is built around leading research teams which enjoy great prestige in their respective fields. Without a doubt, this is the best signature of a European university: the construction of knowledge through investigation and the search for new questions and their corresponding answers, for the permanent fire of curiosity, for the inquisitiveness, and the thirst for knowledge.
The results of research, as well as the application of scientific methods in the development of new technology and ground-breaking teaching initiatives, have given rise to the complete catalogue of our undergraduate, Master’s and Doctoral degrees which, beyond the transmission of the wisdom, communication or understanding, intend to educate upstanding, culturally committed and socially involved citizens. All this without neglecting the challenges posed by the 21st century so that the skills, competencies and content received may be used to strengthen the entrepreneurship spirit and for us to return to society what it has provided us.
Therefore, our educational programme is directed both at institutions and companies, as our teaching and research teams can satisfy their needs in our fields: arts, geography, land use planning, archaeology, cultural heritage, translation, interpreting, learning of languages, desktop publishing, digital processing of documents, local development, literary creation, as well as many other subjects that I invite you to explore. Besides official university studies, our departments can design specific courses on demand, broadening our already generous educational offering through seminars and special courses
Our doors are always open; enter inour Faculty and you will find an attractive, top quality, and enthusiastic program . Welcome to your new home.
