Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies

Spanish, the third most spoken language internationally, engages you with the world. Studying in the Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies equips you with a deep and applied knowledge of the Spanish language, its social and academic contexts and uses, as well as the tools to examine and understand past and contemporary forms of politics, society and culture in the Spanish-speaking world. Our exchange programs with universities in Spain and Latin America enhance your learning by offering in-country exposure to these societies and cultures. Language learning in our Department is a means not merely to communicate but to engage with real world issues. Our graduates gain skills that are valued in diplomacy, journalism, arts, education, business and the law: in other words, in all areas requiring cultural exchange.
