What will I study?

Spanish at St Andrews is taught as a world language and oers a broad and diversied experience in a structured degree programme. Together with the many transferable skills acquired the degree will open many professional doors not limited to the Hispanic world. The primary objective of all our courses is knowledge and precise usage of the language, as well as to develop intellectual and cultural competence and to acquire communicative skills which will be valuable in any career. You will also gain the ability to analyse and discuss critically, to present a reasoned argument, to write accurately with correct spelling, punctuation and grammar in both Spanish and English, and to use Information Technology.

Spanish itself is studied in many contexts, including journalism, history, commerce and entertainment, in addition to the rich and interesting forms it takes in literature and cinema. Language is, after all, a social and historical phenomenon and literature is a sensitive and imaginative record of how meaning has been communicated throughout Spanish-speaking communities, both past and present. Our studies aim to explore the great continuities and shifts within Spanish and Spanish American culture, from its early beginnings to the Spain and Latin America of today.
