History/Spanish (4 years)
You can study History as a joint honours degree with Spanish (50% History and 50% Spanish)
History is an inspiring, dynamic and relevant subject. It is always expanding and adapting to absorb new ideas and ask new questions of the past. Studying history will also help you develop practical skills valued by employers, such as the ability to collect and analyse data and to construct a clear argument.
When making your decision about what you might want to study at Bangor, you should bear in mind that you could choose to read for a degree not only in History but also in Welsh History; History with Archaeology; Heritage, Archaeology and History; History with Journalism; History with Film Studies; and joint degrees including History such as History and English.
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.
