Overview

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 to 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 culture, you will spend an extended period studying abroad in either Spain, Mexico, Chile or Argentina.

English Studies at the University of Stirling offers you the perfect chance to dedicate yourself to reading and enjoying a range of great novels, plays and poems from across the world. Your own creative writing can form part of this degree, too – as we believe it aids your understanding of literary style and technique and develops your imagination. It’s just one of the factors that makes our BA a little different from other English courses.

Programme structure

In semesters 5-8, you will continue in the study of language in written and spoken form, and choose from a variety of optional modules. Choices include: Andean Culture; Creative Writing; History and Politics in Argentine Culture; National Identities in the Basque Country and Catalonia; and Sexuality and Gender in Latin American Film.

For many of our Spanish degrees, there is a compulsory period of study abroad for a semester in a Spanish-speaking country
