Spanish Studies and Theatre

Lancaster’s joint Spanish Studies and Theatre degree is taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures in conjunction with Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA). Your Spanish Studies programme gives you the opportunity to acquire high-level language skills while gaining a thorough understanding of the country’s historical, cultural, social and political backgrounds in a global context. In Theatre, you’ll learn about innovative 20th and 21st century theatre and performance through an exciting and varied mix of practical and academic approaches. Your first year comprises an exploration of the Spanish language and its cultural context as well as an introduction to theatre’s key concepts and practical tools that culminates in a group performance project. Alongside this, you will study a minor subject of your choice. Building on your language skills in Year 2, you will study the culture, politics and history of the Spanish-speaking world in more depth, as well as selecting modules which are international in scope and promote a comparative understanding of Europe and beyond. You will combine these with modules such as ‘Performing the Avant-Garde’, ‘Modern Dance’ and ‘British Theatre and the State of the Nation (1945-2000)’. Spending your third year abroad in a Spanish-speaking country makes a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement. In your final year, you consolidate your Spanish language skills, and study specialist culture and comparative modules, such as ‘Witchcraft, Heresy, and the Inquisition: The Prosecution of ‘Otherness’ in Europe (14th-17th c.)’. You will also select LICA modules such as ‘Contemporary European Post-dramatic Theatre’, ‘Creative Enterprise’ and ‘Applied Theatre Practice II’.
