Studying Spanish at Edinburgh encompasses the study not only of the language but also of Hispanic culture and history. Our resources and our expertise will give you privileged access to all major areas of Hispanic language and culture, from Catalonia to Argentina and from Latin American indigenous film-making to Castilian ballads. This programme offers you the chance to perfect your skills in the second most widely spoken language in the world at the same time as Ancient Greek and Latin. During your programme you will explore the highly influential scholarship and literature of the classical world that gave rise to Western society and acquire a deep knowledge of the cultures of Spain and Latin America (past and present). International culture flourishes at the University of Edinburgh, with a thriving Centre for Contemporary Latin American Studies, an annual Spanish film festival, an annual student-led Spanish play, and an annual Portuguese translation workshop, supported by the Instituto CamÃµes Portuguese Language Centre. Our dedicated staff will ensure a supportive learning environment for your studies.
