Course summary

Anthropology and Hispanic Studies at Aberdeen is a great study combination, adding to a thorough grounding in what it means to ‘be human’, with an in-depth study of a major modern European language and culture. You will have the flexibility of a five or four year degree and the language, perspective and skills you will develop will open up a wide range of career options including with an international flavour.Anthropology – for which we boast 100% student satisfaction – will give you a thorough grounding in humanity, the differences in human cultures and communities and how they have developed. You will gain unique insight into behaviours, beliefs and attitudes all over the world, and find connections between aspects of life such as family, economics, politics and religion.Combining this study with a language spoken by 350 million native Spanish speakers in 19 Latin American states, the Spanish Peninsula, and increasingly in the US, is highly appealing to employers operating in increasingly global markets. Spanish & Latin American Studies at Aberdeen has an outstanding reputation, with the highest possible rating of ‘Excellent’ in the last national Teaching Quality Assessment. You will be equipped to communicate in a global language and widen your studies with Spanish-language literature, films and visual culture.As an integral part of your 5-year programme you will spend the third year of your study taking your language skills to a high level as a Teaching Assistant or visiting student in a Spanish-speaking country. The combination of skills you will graduate with will have special appeal to employers in European and international business – including the energy sector which is of growing importance to Latin American economies – and in many other fields where people, cultures, and international outlook feature strongly, including NGOs and international development.
