Course summary

Our Graduate Diploma in Spanish and Latin American Studies is ideal if you wish to familiarise yourself with and understand the rich cultural histories of Spain and Latin America, including Brazil, while also improving your Spanish and your research and study skills.

The programme has been designed for those who want to refresh their knowledge of Spanish and Latin American studies, including Brazilian studies, in preparation for a Master's degree, particularly if you have taken a break from studying and need to refamiliarise yourself with the field, or if you have a degree in a different but relevant subject area. The programme will also suit international students who want to deepen their knowledge of Spanish language and Spanish and Latin American cultures while experiencing life and study in the UK, as well as teachers who want to refresh and deepen their knowledge, but who do not necessarily want to undertake a full MA quite yet.

This programme will help you reinforce your Spanish language skills at an advanced level and develop your analytical and critical skills in the study of Spanish and Latin American cultural forms, including art, film, history, literature, urban studies and linguistics. You will learn the latest theoretical approaches to cultural critique and explore a wide range of cultural forms within their social and historical contexts.

This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study. Graduate Certificates/Diplomas typically take one to two years to complete and are made up of two, three or four modules at final-year undergraduate degree level (worth 60, 90 or 120 credits).

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go on to careers in international organisations or business, translation, teaching, media and creative industries, research or journalism. Possible professions include researcher, journalist, or teacher. This degree may also be useful in becoming a translator, academic librarian, or archivist.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
