Combine learning Spanish and exploring Hispanic culture with studying the way language itself works.
From the regions of Spain to the diverse countries of Latin America, Hispanic Studies covers the history, politics, sport, literature and film of several nations. As the second most widely spoken language in the world, Spanish is an important tool for intercultural communication. No prior knowledge of Spanish is required. You can also choose to learn Portuguese or Catalan.
Linguistics is the study of human language. You’ll be looking at questions like: how did language develop? How is it able to create infinite new meanings? How is it learned? How is it represented in the brain? How do people use it? How does it change over time?
You could find yourself recording dialect speakers, working out the rules of an endangered language or learning how to write down a sneeze.
You’ll spend your third year studying or working in a Spanish-speaking country, immersing yourself in its language and society.
