Course description

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 degree 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 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. The third year is spent in a Spanish speaking country. Your main options are: a paid work placement as an English assistant in schools; study at one of our Erasmus partner universities or, an approved work placement. In each case you also complete a dissertation whilst abroad, which counts towards your degree.

Modules

Year 1: Modules include: Introductions to cultural, literary and social topics; modern European culture. Years 2 and 4: Options offer increasing levels of specialisation, including: Spanish romanticism; twentieth-century women authors; contemporary drama; Galician language and culture; Year 3 is spent in a Spanish-speaking country.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said there's a shortage of modern language graduates, and graduates from Spanish courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. In 2012, just over 1,100 UK graduates got degrees in Spanish, and about one in five got jobs overseas – often as English teachers. If you want to put your degree to work in the UK, teacher training is a common option, and businesses see Spanish-speaking countries as important markets, leading to graduate opportunities in translation, finance, human resources and project management. But remember – whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
