This section provides an outline of the content of this Spanish BA (Hons) course. Each year you'll study a series of modules, some of these are compulsory and others can be selected from a range of optional modules.
In addition to language the Spanish syllabus includes a broad range of stimulating options; by doing single honours you will have the opportunity to cover more or less the full range. First-year courses comprise introductions to the history, culture, cinema and literatures of Europe. Second- and final-year options offer increasing levels of specialisation as you proceed towards your degree. They cover a wide variety of cultural and literary material from Spanish Romanticism to 20th-century women authors, contemporary Catalan culture, Spanish visual culture and Galician language and culture.
The third year is spent in a Spanish-speaking country. Your main options are:
- A paid work placement as an English assistant in schools. Our students have an excellent track record in getting their first choice of placement, whether in Spain or other Spanish-speaking countries such as Argentina or Chile.
- Study at one of our Erasmus partner universities, which include Universidad de Salamanca, Universitat de València, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Universitat d’Alacant, Universidade da Coruna, Universidad de Granada, Universidade de Vigo and Universitat de Girona.
- An approved work placement.
In each case you also complete a dissertation whilst abroad, which counts towards your Bangor degree.
