Course summary

Our BA Spanish and Latin American Studies with International Experience offers you the opportunity to focus on Spanish and Latin American studies, including Brazilian studies, and learn Spanish to an advanced level. Spain and Latin America offer exciting possibilities for the study of literature, culture, history and society. Our interdisciplinary modules cover cultural aspects of modern Spanish and Latin American film, literature, visual culture, linguistics, history and history of art. Included in these is, for example, the study of world cities such as Barcelona and Rio de Janeiro. Leaders in their fields, our language experts, lecturers and researchers provide a unique environment for you to learn and share your experience.The third year is normally spent at a partner institution in a Spanish-speaking country to allow you to develop your language skills and your knowledge of the culture of the language-speaking area you are studying.You can also apply for a three-year version of the programme without a year abroad, and you will normally also be able to transfer to this version of the programme during your first or second year of study if you decide you do not wish to study outside of the UK.**Highlights**- You will have the opportunity to spend a year at a partner institution in a Spanish-speaking country.- Our Department of Cultures and Languages brings together research and teaching in French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish and Latin American studies, including Brazilian studies, and institutionalises long-standing links between these disciplines.- In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), Modern Languages and Linguistics achieved 100% for a research environment conducive to producing research of the highest quality, while 73% of our research was recognised as world-leading or internationally excellent.- Ours is a community of scholars with shared interests in interdisciplinary topics and cross-cultural research.
