Course summary

On the BA Spanish and International Development programme, you will develop your abilities in Spanish, and achieve a profound understanding of different cultures and their development needs and aspirations.

Join our friendly and dynamic Department of Languages and Cultures, which offers the opportunity to study in a lively, multilingual community with staff and students from all over the world. We offer a flexible and supportive approach to learning which allows you to tailor your degree to your interests, including the opportunity to learn other languages.

A joint honours degree that combines Spanish and International Development can give you an insight into fascinating societies, cultures and histories around the world. This programme provides an interdisciplinary grounding in development, addressing real world issues affecting people and planet, in conjunction with in-depth study of the Spanish language and its diverse cultures.

Career

By the time you graduate, you will be able to write and speak fluently in Spanish – an immensely useful skill to have given that there is currently a great shortage of well-qualified linguists in the UK. Outside the UK, Spanish is the main language of Latin American countries that are part of the developing world and where skills learnt on the degree can be applied. The experience of studying or working abroad also distinguishes you from non-language graduates, providing evidence of self-reliance, adaptability and enterprise. You will also develop strong transferable skills in oral communication, research and writing, together with a high level of cultural literacy and critical sophistication.
