Course summary

Study a language with an amazing global reach of over 400 million speakers. Spend a year abroad studying, working or teaching in a Spanish-speaking country, consolidating your language skills. Combine the study of Spanish with investigations into the nature of language itself. You'll be taught the language component of the course in Spanish, so you'll become confident using Spanish as a means of communication, and for critical thinking. You'll gain an understanding of Spanish culture and society which will underpin your abilities as a high-level communicator. There are many Spanish-speaking countries to choose from for your year abroad. Your communication skills and intercultural understanding will be complemented by studying linguistics. In studying linguistics you will learn the science behind how we communicate. You’ll engage with the study of language on a conceptual level as well as the detailed level of linguistic data. Our department is one of the highest-ranked centres for research in linguistics in the UK, and the strength and diversity of our research is reflected in our teaching. The course has flexibility in terms of how much Spanish and linguistics content you study over the four years. Your knowledge and understanding of how a language works, and how it is used will give you a solid foundation for many careers.
