Study Spanish Degrees

As the official language of over 20 countries and the world's second most widely spoken language, Spanish is a popular language to study in higher education. Studying Spanish unlocks access to an incredibly diverse range of culture and history, as you learn about Hispanic cultures and customs, and the different varieties of the language that exist around the world.

Graduates of degrees in Spanish will develop communication skills that can be utilised in a wide range of careers in areas such as business services, translation, teaching, politics, marketing and tourism.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes, including lectures, tutorials, seminars and group projects. Depending on your course, you may also have the option to take part in a work placement. Modules you study could include:

  • Spanish language
  • Spanish and Latin America studies
