Linguistics is the study of how language works – how it is structured, used and understood. If you have an A-level in Spanish, this degree will allow you to become fluent in a major world language and put it in the context of language as a universal human attribute. Core modules will introduce you to key themes and approaches in linguistics, as well as developing your language skills. You’ll also choose from a variety of optional modules, allowing you to pursue your interests in Spanish and Latin American culture alongside language change or phonology. You could even choose to learn Catalan or gain skills in translation or interpreting. Spanning the arts and the sciences, this degree will give you lots of choice while equipping you with a broad base of valuable skills that will help you stand out to employers. From the physical production of speech sounds to the Spanish Civil War, you’ll find there’s a lot to discover at Leeds.
