English Literature and Spanish
You can study English Literature as a joint honours degree with Spanish (50% English Literature and 50% Spanish). Please read the course description for both subjects.
This course offers you the opportunity to study a broad range of English Literature in small groups, led by the research experts in the field, in an atmosphere of creative, scholarly enterprise in order to develop skills of critical analysis that are highly valued by employers.
This course will give you advanced skills in the Spanish language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. Doing single honours course will also allow you to follow a full range of options, which will equip you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and life of the modern Hispanic countries at a level which will allow you to consider postgraduate study. You will also have the added bonus of studying Galician in your second year.
