Combining German with Spanish gives you the opportunity of studying two influential European cultures and their hugely important languages. Studying these subjects at Southampton offers you real insights into the cultures and societies of the larger Spanish and German speaking worlds, and sharpens your understanding of their commonalities and differences. You will study modules in both languages and choose from a range of options that explore cultural, social and historical issues relevant to the German and Spanish speaking worlds. You will spend year three in either a German or Spanish speaking country.
