Course description

At Sheffield we pride ourselves on finding new and exciting ways to immerse our students in Hispanic cultures. This includes visits from Spanish and Latin American writers, film makers and scholars, some filmmaking of your own, and the chance to take part in Hispanic plays and concerts. We teach Spanish in small groups, often led by native speakers. We also offer a beginners course for students who don’t have A Level Spanish. You will spend your third year studying or working in Spain or a Latin American country. Recent placements include internships in Panama and volunteering in Costa Rica. Choosing a degree like this one is often the first step towards a richer intellectual and cultural life. A second language, and experience of living and studying in another culture are big advantages in the jobs market too, particularly if you want an international career. Graduates go into teaching, translating, journalism, broadcasting, government, business and non-profits.

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 2015, nearly 1300 UK graduates got degrees in Spanish and the subject is seeing its popularity increase. 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 marketing, human resources, sales 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.
