Estudios Generales Letras is the program within PUCP that could be seen as the equivalent of the first 2 years of an undergraduate study. It consists of 2 years of interdisciplinary and liberal arts courses with the idea of preparing the student for their future career path. With this solid base in humanities established, the student can then go on to focus on and develop a more specific field of study. They will elect a facultad (can be considered the equivalent of a major) where they will study for another 3 or 4 years, depending on the facultad. Estudios Generales Letras aims to provide the students with knowledge, abilities, an ethically and culturally aware background, and the desire to continue their education and eventually enter the professional world, prepared for what may come.
