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 is designed to perfect your skills in the second most widely spoken language in the world and provide you with a deep knowledge of literature and culture. You will explore a range of texts, both literary and non-literary, from the English-speaking world, Spain and Latin America, and undertake rigorous and critical study of the production, reception and interpretation of texts, both literary and non-literary, written in English and Spanish. 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.
