Overview

Bringing together theory and practice, our Film and Media course draws from the University of Stirling’s legacy as a pioneer in Film and Media research and teaching.

This course not only ensures you’re well-versed in theoretical and critical aspects of the subject area, but also have the opportunity to become fully trained in practicalities such as audio production, video editing, scriptwriting and more. Our emphasis on all-round training means you’ll graduate ready to follow in the footsteps of previous Stirling students who have forged successful careers in a range of media roles – from broadcasting and publishing, to advertising and public relations

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.

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.
