Course Description

This course offers you the opportunity to combine studies in the language, literature, history and culture of Spanish with a wide range of modules in history.

This course, combining history with degree-level study in Spanish language and culture, is open to beginners in Spanish as well as post-A level students. Beginners’ Spanish students follow an intensive language course designed to take them to degree level within four years. Post-A level students in Spanish take advanced classes in Spanish alongside beginners’ Portuguese in year one, after which Portuguese is optional. Absolute beginners, GCSE, AS, or A level students in Spanish are all warmly invited to apply.

On this course you will normally divide your time equally between the two subjects. In history, project work is introduced in the first year and developed through to the final year when you will undertake a year-long special subject study based on primary historical sources. In Hispanic Studies, you will study Spanish and aspects of the history, culture, cinema and literature of Spain and Spanish America. If you have an A level in Spanish, you will take beginners’ Portuguese in year one and will have the option of continuing with Portuguese language beyond your first year and studying aspects of the histories, cultures and literatures of the Lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) world, including Portugal, Brazil and Lusophone Africa.
