Studying modern languages is about more than vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation: you will also immerse yourself in culture, spend time working or studying abroad and learn to understand the subtleties of communication. This programme focuses on the multicultural and multilingual nature of the Hispanic world. It is split between the two languages (Spanish and Catalan). To achieve the same high level of competence in both languages, you will take modules in the written and spoken language for each subject all the way through your degree course. In addition, you will choose, each year, from a range of modules offered by the department of Iberian and Latin American Studies or by the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film more generally. You normally spend your third year abroad in a Catalan-speaking territory. You can choose whether to study, or take up a work placement.
