Course details

The degree programmes in French in Intercultural Communication reflect the current concept of Translation Studies as an integrated discipline consisting of the theoretical, descriptive and applied branches. The BA programme emphasizes the descriptive and applied branches, with theory covered by courses entitled Basics of Translation Theory and Basics of Interpreting Theory. The descriptive branch comprises the Czech language, contrastive linguistics, history of the respective cultures and literary text analysis; the applied branch comprises translation and interpreting seminars. Students are expected to broaden their qualifications by attending a selection of elective courses, benefiting from a considerable teaching and research potential of the Faculty of Arts. The graduate has communication competences in both working languages (French at EFRL level C1) and basic translation and interpreting skills which he/she is expected to be able to develop rapidly according to the requirements of the client / employer. The graduate’s broad general knowledge foundation meets the requirements for higher degree studies.
