In semesters 1-4 you’ll take Spanish at either beginner or advanced level, plus two modules in other subjects, allowing you to develop your interests and practise your critical skills. The advanced course comprises tuition in written and spoken Spanish and Latin American cultures. Beginners focus exclusively in the first two semesters on developing their Spanish with a dedicated language course. During semesters 3-4, beginners and advanced language students will continue to learn the language, while also studying Spanish and Latin American cultures. In semesters 5-8, you’ll continue in the study of language in written and spoken form, and choose from a variety of optional modules. Choices include: Andean Culture; History and Politics in Argentine Culture; National Identities in the Basque Country and Catalonia; and Sexuality and Gender in Latin American Film. For many of the Spanish degrees, there is a compulsory period of Study Abroad for a semester in a Spanish-speaking country. In your final study year, you may write a dissertation on your chosen subject in place of a taught module. If you’re taking a Single Honours degree in Spanish and Latin American Studies, writing a dissertation is mandatory.
