All our degrees involving Spanish combine core training in the written and spoken language with the critical study of aspects of Hispanic culture through an extensive range optional modules. We place strong emphasis on the practical use of the Spanish language and you’ll be able to develop fluency in the understanding and use of Spanish in a wide range of contexts.
During your studies you’ll come to understand the historical development of Spain and the Hispanic world and be introduced to some of the finest and most famous works of art and literature, including the visual arts, painting and cinema. You’ll learn about the disciplines of linguistics, history and literary criticism, while gaining an insight into the life of Spain and Latin America that will be of value in itself.
If you choose to spend your year abroad in a Spanish-speaking country, we have well-established exchanges with Spanish and Mexican universities or you can apply for a teaching placement in Spain or Latin America. Other students secure work placements: if these are in Spain they can be supported by Erasmus funding.
