By looking at different parts of the Americas – the United States, Canada and Latin America – alongside one another you will be able to come up with a rounded understanding of the relationships between North and South America, in terms of history, culture and politics. Our non-language modules in Hispanic Studies cover the history, politics and cultures of the Latin America, including the period of Spanish and Portuguese colonial expansion into the Americas. In American Studies, you will learn about the history, politics, literature and culture of Anglophone North America.For your language component, we take beginners in Spanish and students with an A-level in Spanish. For beginners you can be someone with no Spanish or someone with a GCSE. Beginners can reach the same degree standard as non-beginners. Those of you with an A-level in Spanish may take beginners Portuguese in your first year after which you may carry it on to the final year. You will spend your third year abroad in Spanish America, immersing yourself in the culture and language. If you continue with Portuguese this can include Brazil.
