Course summary

This degree combines English with the study of Spanish, the second most widely spoken European language in the world. The course is ideal for those with an enquiring mind and a passion for exploring the cultures of other countries and societies, including those of Latin America. It offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and a wide range of options that will allow you to pursue your own interests. Students on this course will join two large departments with top researchers in a great diversity of fields and will be encouraged to develop expertise and research skills relevant to both subjects, while also considering the relationships between them. You will explore a rich variety of texts in their social, political and historical contexts and will develop excellent critical and communication skills, both in English and in Spanish. You will follow a structured language course in Spanish, as well as explore the rich history and culture of Spanish-speaking countries and communities, choosing from a range of units in literature, film, history, thought, politics, linguistics and visual culture. You will spend your third year abroad in a Spanish-speaking country, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities: bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/go-abroad/ You will complete a dissertation during your final year – a project that will ask you to bring together the skills you have developed while studying both disciplines. Teaching is delivered through lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, and one-to-one project supervision. Assessments may include presentations, essays, commentaries, exams, collaborative projects, debates, podcasts, video essays, and dissertations. Our course will ensure you practice a range of skills, which will make you attractive to future employers in the globalised workplace and in the sector of your choice. Spanish can be studied from beginner’s level and post-A level (or equivalent). All modern languages students have access to our state-of-the-art Multimedia Centre. You can also access extracurricular activities such as talks by visiting speakers, societies, language cafés, student newspapers, and talent shows.
