Course description

  • The course gives students a thorough grounding in the languages and cultures of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds.
  • Alongside their study of Spanish language, students explore a range of options in visual culture (including film), area-specific history, linguistics and literature.
  • Students study both European and Brazilian Portuguese alongside a range of options in areas such as contemporary culture, colonialism, literature and cinema from Brazil, Portugal, Mozambique and Angola.
  • Year 3 is spent abroad, split between Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking countries (on university exchange, work placement, or teaching as an English-language assistant).
