Spanish and Sport Science
You study a total of 120 credits in each year. Half the credits are completed within the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (SHES) and half in the School of Modern Languages.
The Sport Science element of this degree provides students with the intellectual and practical (laboratory/testing) skills that will enable them to ask relevant questions in sport science and apply appropriate research skills. This will further enable them to recognise how they might apply their academic and practical skills to work within the wider community, developing their capabilities through new experiences.
The Spanish aspect of the 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 Spanish 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.
