BA in Linguistics And Spanish (Full Time)

Bangor University

Bachelor Degree , Linguistics

Course Description

We tend to take our ability to produce and understand speech for granted until we try to learn another language, watch how a child learns a first language, or witness the effects of language handicap. Linguistics is the study of language abilities, how they are acquired, how they are used, and how they may be impaired. Because speech is so central to our very existence it is a fascinating and rewarding subject to study. This course is an ideal background for many careers, especially those in the teaching and caring professions, but also in more 'high-tech' fields like computing and telecommunications.

This course will give you advanced skills in the Spanish language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. Doing single honours course will also allow you to follow a full range of options, which will equip you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and life of the modern Hispanic countries at a level which will allow you to consider postgraduate study. You will also have the added bonus of studying Galician in your second year.
