Course summary

Gaelic and Spanish & Latin American Studies at Aberdeen is the ideal opportunity to combine in-depth study of the language, literature and culture of Scotland’s oldest language – as a native speaker or complete beginner – with Hispanic Studies. You will have the opportunity to specialise in either Latin America or Spain and develop excellent language skills while becoming a highly sought-after graduate for a wide range of career options.We have been teaching Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig) and culture for a hundred years, led by teachers and researchers passionate about Gaelic and whose work directly influences Scottish policy on keeping Gaelic alive, healthy and important in Scotland today. You will learn more about Scotland's oldest living language and develop your Gaelic skills in a friendly and supportive environment, with opportunities to get involved with northern Scotland’s Gaelic-interest community through clubs, activities, networks and organisations.Hispanic Studies has an outstanding reputation with the highest possible rating of ‘Excellent’ in the last national Teaching Quality Assessment. You will be equipped with the skills to communicate in a global language, spoken by 350 million native Spanish speakers in 19 Latin American states, in Spain, and increasingly in the US and complement this with studies in Spanish and Latin American culture.As an integral part of your 5-year programme, you will spend the whole of year three developing your language skills as a teaching assistant or visiting student in a Spanish-speaking country. You will graduate with Spanish language skills to open opportunities in the UK and abroad in industry, politics, EU administration, local government and teaching. Opportunities for graduates fluent in Scottish Gaelic are also very good. Teaching, Gaelic development, arts management, and librarianship are all career options and the commitment in Scotland to Gaelic broadcasting creates opportunities for Gaelic graduates to work in the media
