Course summary

Lancaster’s joint Spanish Studies and Mathematics degree is taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures in conjunction with the Mathematics and Statistics Department. The Complete University Guide 2017 ranked Spanish Studies 5th and Mathematics 10th in the UK.

Your Spanish Studies programme gives you the opportunity to acquire high-level language skills while gaining a thorough understanding of the country’s historical, cultural, social and political background in a global context. In Maths, you’ll study in-depth mathematical theory and practice and have the option to specialise in pure mathematics or statistics.

Your first year comprises an exploration of the Spanish language and its cultural context, core modules in calculus and probability, and selected modules in topics such as ‘Linear Algebra’ and ‘Discrete Mathematics’. Alongside these, you will study a minor subject of your choice.

Building on your language skills in Year 2, you will study the culture, politics and history of the Spanish-speaking world in more depth, as well as selecting modules which are international in scope and promote a comparative understanding of Europe and beyond. You will combine these with Mathematics modules such as ‘Groups and Rings’ and ‘Real Analysis’.

Spending your third year abroad in a Spanish-speaking country gives you the opportunity to develop your language proficiency while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement.
