Semesters 1 – 4:
You may study Spanish at advanced level or as a beginner. The advanced course in the first four semesters comprises tuition in written and spoken Spanish designed to advance further your knowledge of the language. At the same time, you will undertake an introduction to modern Spanish and Latin American cultures.
The Beginners’ course concentrates on learning the language in the first two semesters with a dedicated language course, based on seminar-size classes. In the first semester of Year 2, beginners progress to an intermediate course, enhancing their knowledge of the language whilst being progressively introduced to the study of Spanish and Latin American cultures. In Semester 2, they are ready to join students from the Advanced course, having now acquired a good knowledge of the language and the necessary skills to study Spanish and Latin American cultures more intensively.
Semesters 5 – 8:
An integrated, and consecutively structured series of language courses enhances your ability to use the language in both written and spoken forms.
At the same time, there is a wide variety of more specialised option modules from which to choose. Recent options deal with Atlantic Cinema, the Culture of the Andes, the Experience of Migration in Modern Spain, the Experiences of Indigenous Women in Latin America, Spanish Modernism, the Representation of War in Spanish Culture, Mexico’s Cultural Identity, Documenting Latin America, and Argentine History, Politics and Society in Film.
In your final year of study, you may write a dissertation on a subject of your choice, in place of taught modules. Only if you are taking Single Honours in Spanish and Latin American Studies is it mandatory to write a dissertation.
