Overview

In Linguistics, compulsory modules provide you with the analytical tools and concepts that are essential for anyone studying human language. Optional modules give you the chance to specialise in areas of the subject that catch your imagination, including language acquisition, historical linguistics, or the study of language in its social and cultural contexts.

In Hispanic Studies, about a third of teaching time is devoted to developing your written and oral fluency in Spanish. There are language laboratory, video and satellite TV facilities as well as weekly classes with native speakers.

Level one provides a grounding in the language, culture, history and society of Spain and Latin America. You can take Portuguese or Catalan if you have the right qualifications. At levels two and three you study diverse aspects of Spanish and Latin American society, history and culture, including film, music, literature, art and sport.

Level three includes practice-based modules in interpreting, translating and musical performance. Language learning remains central, but you have an extensive choice of optional modules.

Career opportunities

Teaching is a popular option for those who want to make direct use of their subject knowledge. Others apply the transferable skills they have acquired in many different sectors. Their job titles include Radio Presenter, Charity Administrator, Retail Management Trainee, Copywriter, Language Assistant, Marketing Officer, TV Researcher, Parliamentary Researcher, Press Assistant, Learning Disabilities Key Worker, Informatics Assistant, Recruitment Consultant, Assistant Brand Manager, Audit Associate, HR Assistant, Assistant Export Administrator, Public Relations Account Executive, and Pastoral Support Worker.

Some graduates stay on for postgraduate study. Approximately half of students taking a masters course choose to study aspects of English in greater depth. Other choices for further study include journalism, law conversion courses, human resources and other types of management.
