This course combines history of art with study of Portuguese. This combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to an increasingly globalised workplace. Portuguese is the seventh most widely spoken language in the world and is an official language of nine countries across four continents. The rise of the Brazilian and Angolan economies and recent major sporting events in Brazil mean Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand. You will study a combination of language, art history and culture units, spending your third year abroad studying or working in a Portuguese-speaking environment, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural knowledge. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment for our students as staff respond in their teaching to new developments.
