Galician Philology

It is possible to study a 25 ECTS credit minor subject block or individual study modules in Galician Philology at the University of Helsinki. On the one hand, the aim of the studies is to provide the students with a basic knowledge of Galician and, on the other hand, to provide them with a philological foundation for further studies and research of Galician. Study of Galician is particularly well-suited for students of Portuguese and those interested in language history. Galician is an old language which has retained many of the features that have disappeared from other languages spoken on the Iberian peninsula. Other students than those of Spanish or Portuguese Philology are also welcomed to participate in the courses provided they possess adequate Spanish or Portuguese skills.
