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 degree offers students the chance to study two of the most widely spoken languages in the Western world: Spanish, in both its Peninsular and Latin American variations, and Portuguese, in both its European and Brazilian forms. It also addresses the cultural diversity of both the Iberian Peninsula and of Latin America. The degree is split equally between the two languages. 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 from a range of modules offered by the department of Iberian and Latin American Studies or the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film more generally. You normally spend your third year abroad in a Portuguese-speaking country.
