Spanish and Linguistics (4 years)

Joint Honours degrees give you the maximum flexibility to study subject areas that really interest you. You can shape your study according to your strengths, interests and career ambitions. SPANISH can be studied at beginner or GCSE level where you won't need any prior knowledge of the language. If you'd like to study this at post A-level then you'll need an A-level in Spanish at grade C or above. The course explores a range of interesting aspects of Spanish culture, politics and society and will provide you with an in-depth analysis of these areas, which you'll be able to utilise during your third year where you can spend time either working or studying abroad. LINGUISTICS will enhance and directly influence your understanding of human communications, identity and how language constructs and constrains meaning. Spanish at NTU has been created to ensure that you gain a quick learning of the language and an in-depth understanding of the societies and cultures in which it's spoken. You’ll also have an exciting opportunity to either work or study in Spain or South America during your third year to practically apply your learning and gain additional knowledge. This course will help you to gain an impressive communicative skill whilst developing your accuracy and fluency of Spanish. Our partner universities are in; Alcalá, Avila, León, Madrid, Salamanca, Murcia, Granada, Valencia, Oviedo, the Basque Country and Santiago ( Chile). The course will teach you by using the latest methodologies and CALL technologies. Alongside classes, you'll have access to excellent language resource centres and computer aided language learning software. Linguistics will provide you with the knowledge which is required to analyse language on a larger and more detailed scale, paying attention to the power that language has to construct meaning in societies. You'll learn language structure, the study of meaning and the social functions of language. To study this course we will not expect you to have prior knowledge of grammar; foreign languages; or technical terminology. You'll examine the latest developments in clinical linguistics, media discourse, child language acquisition and research in languages and gender and then be taught how to carry out research like linguists do. This course will prepare you for a range of national and international careers by equipping you with the necessary tools to analyse language. You'll be able to understand the power that language has to construct and constrain interpretation in our worlds. Both subjects will strengthen your writing and understanding of the English language and the Spanish language. Studying Spanish can give your degree a competitive edge as you'll gain skills such as multicultural perspectives and become more flexible in your learning which will help you to seek more job opportunities both nationally and internationally. Many graduates continue to be recruited by firms located in Spain and Latin America. Linguistics will help you to understand the structure of language and the social functions of language. You'll develop excellent communication within both English and Spanish.
