The Department of Foreing Languages, Literatures and Cultures [formerly: Foreign Languages, Literatures and Communication Studies] was created in 2012, as a result of the renaming and reorganisation of the earlier Departments of Languages, Literatures and Comparative Cultures and of Human Language, Communication and Cultural Studies.

The extensive research carried out by the academics affiliated to this department stands out for its interest in the nature of intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue, approached through a highly international perspective, as witnessed by the activities of the department's research centres (CERLIS, CISAM, Diathesis Cartographic Workshop, Centre for Tourism and Land Use Studies (CeSTIT), Center of Studies on the Languages of Identities) and by its involvement in the European doctorates in Literary Studies and in Euro-American Literatures. The training of young scholars also benefits from participation in other doctoral courses across the country, in national and international research projects, and in a wide range of seminars. The results of all these research initiatives are regularly disseminated through international conferences and publications.
