Course description

From US foreign policy to Latin American cinema, this joint honours degree allows you to combine two very different disciplines. Youâ??ll build your Spanish language skills and gain an insight into the culture and history of Spanish-speaking countries. But youâ??ll also develop a deep understanding of the ways in which countries and societies interact. Core modules will improve your speaking, reading, listening and writing skills and introduce key concepts and theories of international relations. Youâ??ll then build on this foundation by choosing from a wide variety of optional modules in both subjects. You could study the politics of aid, Spanish-American literature, security and insurgency or regional identities in Spain to name a few. You could even learn Catalan or work on translation and interpreting. If you have an A-level in Spanish, this degree gives you an opportunity to explore the complex dynamics of international relations and become fluent in a language spoken in 23 countries.

Most politics or international relations graduates don't actually go into politics - although many do, as activists, fundraisers and researchers. Other popular industries include marketing and PR, management consultancy, youth and community work, the finance industry and academic research (you usually need a postgraduate degree to get into research). Politics is a very popular postgraduate subject, and so about one in six politics graduates go on to take another course to get a Masters after they finish their degrees.

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.
