Award Details
Award Activity

Please note that the online information about the courses on the host institution website is in Spanish and, although many faculty members teaching at the MA speak English, the scholar will be expected to teach in Spanish (this also applies to modules with contents which focus on other languages). Detailed information will be provided to after selection.

Teaching at the postgraduate level:

  • The visiting professor will teach a maximum of two courses, with a maximum total of 25 students in each course. Each course consists of 14 teaching hours in the classroom, divided up between lectures and discussion. The selected scholar must have sufficient language proficiency to teach in Spanish.
  • Teach some of the required courses on the Theoretical and Applied Linguistics Master’s Program, in the areas of theoretical linguistics, synchronic language description, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, phonetics and phonology, applied linguistics and specialized languages. Syllabi are already developed.
  • Assist with the supervision of doctoral students on the use of linguistic methods in their research projects; these students will mainly be enrolled in the linguistics program.
  • Assist with the supervision of graduate students on the use of linguistic methods in their Master’s dissertations.
  • The students of the MA in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics have different language backgrounds.
  • The lecturer should expect students to complete the written and oral assignments in Spanish only. Some bibliography may be provided in English, if necessary, but this should be reduced to a minimum.
