Over 400 million people around the world speak Spanish – which is why learning the language for yourself makes you a powerful asset to employers in an age of global opportunities. This course offers Spanish for all – from complete beginners to advanced speakers – and equips you to read, write and speak the language on an advanced level appropriate for the demands of today’s job market. You will also have the chance to acquire a critical awareness of the societies and cultures of Spain and Latin America, as well as transferrable skills that can be applied in a number of professional and academic settings. In order to truly immerse yourself in Spanish and Latin American cultures, and in most degree combinations, you will spend an extended period studying abroad in Spain, Mexico, Chile or Argentina. This opportunity to refine your language skills will be enhanced by the research-led teaching you will enjoy in Stirling. There is also normally the opportunity to work abroad with the British Council to enhance your CV, and at the same time you keep learning and experiencing the language and the culture. This is a competitive exercise, and students must apply in advance to be considered (information and meetings are run every year for interested students). If you would like to explore multiple subjects, Spanish and Latin American Studies can be combined with a number of other courses. From Accountancy or French and Education (Secondary) or Business Studies to Law and Journalism, each combination is designed to help you work towards your vision for the future right from the outset of your studies.
