About English Language and Linguistics and Hispanic Studies at University of Kent

Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world – outside Spain, it is the official language of all countries in South and Central America except Brazil, and is widely spoken in many parts of North America. The programme gives you the opportunity to explore the languages and cultures of Spain and Spanish America while developing your language skills. Studying English Language and Linguistics, you have the opportunity to explore both the structure of language and its relationship with culture, society and the mind. A broad choice of theoretical topics includes areas such as syntax, phonetics and phonology, morphology, sociolinguistics, language acquisition, semantics, pragmatics, literary stylistics and critical and cultural theory. Modules covering language learning and teaching, creative and media writing, and language and media have a more vocational focus. You are required to spend a year working or studying abroad between your second and final year of study. In previous years, students have studied at our partner institutions in a country appropriate to their programme of study. You’ll develop your language skills, grow in self-confidence, gain a new academic perspective, and enhance your employability. Many Hispanic Studies staff are native speakers and we offer advanced language modules focusing on translation and interpreting – valuable skills when looking for employment. Our facilities include multimedia laboratories, which offer a variety of interactive language learning programmes and dictionaries, and access to audio, video and computer-assisted language learning.

All Spanish language modules include small group seminars, conversation classes run by a native speaker, short lectures in Spanish, work in a language laboratory and work on computer-assisted language learning materials.

Stage 1 is assessed by 100% coursework (essays, class participation) in some modules, and a 50:50 combination of coursework and examination in others. In Stages 2 and 3, depending on the modules you select, assessment varies from 100% coursework (extended essays) to a combination of examination and coursework, in the ratio 60:40 or 80:20.

English Language and Linguistics

On average, you have several one-hour lectures a week plus four seminar classes. This varies depending on the material and the nature of the module, and may include workshops, discussion groups and practical sessions. You have group or one-to-one tutorials for research projects and dissertations, and also have tutorials with your lecturers and seminar leaders to discuss coursework and assignments. In addition, you have access to further information and support via Moodle, our interactive web-based learning platform.

At each stage, some modules are continuously assessed, while others combine coursework and examination. Stage 2 and 3 modules count towards your final degree result.
