Course summary

Increase your knowledge of one of the most widely spoken global languages as you discover the language, culture, politics and society of contemporary Spain and Latin America.

Course overview

During this course, you will have the opportunity to develop your language skills to a very high level, and study a range of cultural and historical contexts. You will also have the chance to undertake placements in Spain and/or Latin America, to gain invaluable employment skills and knowledge of current affairs.

Why study this course with us?

At Chester you have an opportunity to undertake a 5 to 8 week placement in Spain or Costa Rica at the end of Year 2 (Level 5). You will also have the opportunity to complete an academic year in Spain or Latin America. This allows you to split your experience abroad between two countries and to spend time in both Spain and another Spanish speaking country.

Teaching methods

You will be taught in a dynamic Department that includes three digital language laboratories, study rooms, and a dedicated resources room.

Assessment

All four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking – will be assessed, as well as your ability to research and analyse. You will be assessed via a variety of formats: essays, role plays, presentations, summaries, debates, portfolios, discussion papers, translations, projects, dissertation and exams.

Job prospects

A degree in Spanish develops an impressive range of skills including strong communication and presentation skills, the ability to work autonomously and in groups, analytical and critical discernment and the resilience and confidence developed during placements abroad. Graduates often pursue further study or careers in translation, teaching, business, hospitality, the public sector and governmental or international organisations.

Careers service

The University has an award winning Careers and Employability service which provides a variety of employability-enhancing experiences; through the curriculum; through employer contact and through tailored group sessions and individual information, advice and guidance.
