Hispanic Studies - Hispanic Studies covers the languages, literatures, cultures and histories of Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Each year you take two modules in Spanish language at the appropriate level, plus students of advanced Spanish will take two further modules in Portuguese, Catalan or Basque which you will learn from scratch if you take Hispanic Studies as a Major or as a Single Honours degree. In Year One you will also take foundational modules which introduce Iberian and Latin American histories, languages and cultures; students of advanced Spanish taking Single Honours will also take a ‘Language awareness’ module, which is designed to support your language learning by sensitising you to issues in language and linguistics, and a module on Iberian Literature. During your second and final year you complement your study of Spanish and Catalan, Basque or Portuguese by choosing four (two for a Major) modules from a wide range including options on Latin American literature and cultures, Basque, Brazilian, Latin American and Spanish cinema and Spanish literature from medieval to modern times. You may also, subject to approval, select relevant modules from the range of modules offered within the wider School of Histories, Languages and Cultures, including modules from Film Studies.
English Language - Our English Language programme aims to develop your understanding of the ways in which language works in the world. You will gain insights into the ways in which the language we use in everyday life is shaped by factors such as history, culture and psychology. You will study a range of approaches to the analysis of language with tutors who are active and innovative researchers in the field. English is a flexible subject open to many influences from its wider culture (eg politics, philosophy, history) and from other art forms (such as film, music, or digital media). As such, a 25% English programme will complement any other choices that you make. We cover a wide range of literary writings in English, from the early medieval period to the present day, and a variety of approaches to understanding the way in which the English language, written and spoken, works.
