Course summary

For centuries, both English- and Spanish-speaking cultures have had a profound international influence on literature. This programme aims to develop your critical, analytic, linguistic and creative skills by engaging with a broad range of texts in both English and Spanish, and a variety of approaches to reading. Through intense language training and a year in a Spanish-speaking country, you will have the opportunity to learn to read, write, speak and translate Spanish to a high standard. You will also gain a broad cultural education, prized by graduate employers. From Year 2 onwards, you have the option to study Portuguese, Basque or Catalan. From Europe to Latin America, the 20 countries where Spanish is an official language have fascinatingly rich and varied cultures. On this joint programme, you will learn the Spanish language in the context of an extraordinary range of literature, film and theatre from around the world and from medieval to contemporary times. Likewise, our English Literature curriculum explores the cultural contexts of writing in English from the late middle-ages to the present. By enhancing your unique literary and critical faculties, the programme prepares you to contribute to a society in which an understanding of texts of all kinds is crucially important.
