You will spend 50% of your time on Linguistics and 50% of your time studying Hispanic Studies but after beginning the course, you may be able to transfer to Hispanic Studies with Linguistics, which would enable you to study 75% Hispanic Studies and 25% Linguistics. Spanish is a world language with around 400 million speakers and is today one of the most important languages for commerce and cultural exchange. Warwick offers an innovative approach, combining the study of the Spanish language with the study of the diverse range of Hispanic cultures across Europe, the Caribbean, the Americas, and event aspects of Hispanic history in Africa and the Pacific. All our programmes are designed to enable you to study the Spanish language and Hispanic literatures and cultures to the highest level, while developing your communication, analytical and research skills. You will work closely with leading researchers whose specialisms range from contemporary Spain to Latin America, via Galicia, the Caribbean, the Atlantic and even the UK.
