This single honours course is based on the same principles as single honours Spanish, but allows you to include a substantial proportion of study in Business Studies. Spanish is the major subject which counts for two-thirds of your degree, and Business Studies is the minor subject which counts for the remaining third. For a list of equally-weighted joint honours courses, see Joint Honours courses.
The Spanish part of the course will give you advanced skills in the Spanish language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The Spanish course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work.
For the Business Studies part of the course, you will develop a broad understanding of business organisations. You will understand how businesses develop strategies, take decisions, organise their internal resources, and manage risk and uncertainty.
