The Department of Hispanic Philology was founded in 1961 by Prof. Toma Tomov and Asst. Prof. Emilia Tsenkova, and was later renamed, successively, Department of Ibero-Romance Philologies and Department of Hispanic and Lusophone Studies. It employs highly qualified lecturers from Bulgaria and Spain.


The curricula are similar to those of many foreign universities and the diplomas of our students are recognized by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Kingdom of Spain. Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski” has signed agreements for cooperation and exchange in lecturing and research with Spanish and Portuguese universities, as well as agreements under the Erasmus program with Spanish and French universities.


The department offers training in three educational degrees - Bachelor, Master and Doctoral (PhD). The application for the Bachelor's degree doesn’t depend on the level of proficiency in Spanish, as during the first year advanced and beginners are trained in different programs.
