Program description

Joint Honours degrees enable you to have the maximum flexibility to study subject areas that really interest you. SPANISH can be studied at beginner or GCSE level where you won't need any prior knowledge of the language. If you'd like to study Spanish at post A-level then you'll need an A-level in Spanish. NTU's Spanish courses are in the UK's Top 20 for student satisfaction (NSS 2017). The course explores a range of interesting aspects of Spanish culture, politics and society and will provide you with an in-depth analysis of these areas which you'll be able to incorporate during Year Three. NTU has a 90% student satisfaction rate for Iberian Studies (NSS 2017).

You'll have the option to spend time either working or studying abroad in either Spain or South America to gain independence and learn about the Spanish culture, politics and history. PHILOSOPHY at NTU differs from the typical philosophy courses at other universities as it focuses on the study of the many philosophical problems which today's leading decision makers encounter. You'll be taught how to question the world in a logical and critical manner, which are skills that many of today's top employers are seeking. Spanish at NTU has been created to ensure that you gain a quick learning of the language and an in-depth understanding of the societies and cultures in which it's spoken. You’ll also have an exciting opportunity to either work or study in Spain or South America during your third year to practically apply your learning and gain additional knowledge. This course will help you to gain an impressive communication skill whilst developing your accuracy and fluency of the modern language of Spanish. Our partner universities are in; Alcalá, Avila, León, Madrid, Salamanca, Murcia, Granada, Valencia, Oviedo, the Basque Country and Santiago ( Chile). An ability to speak a modern language can help you to stand out within the graduate employment market and to gain useful skills for your professional and personal life. Philosophy at NTU has been shaped around the interface between philosophical ideas and everyday life and will encourage you to think about the world more clearly and critically. You'll focus on the history of ideas as well as the philosophical problems which many world leaders face today and improve your power of argument, analysis expertise and be able to think in a critical way so that you search for answers to ultimate questions. The course is taught by active philosophy researchers through the use of lectures, presentations and group seminars. Students with a language degree are now actively sought after by employers for today's global markets. A degree in Spanish and Philosophy shows that you are self-motivated, organised, creative, think critically and can manage your workload. These skills will help to give your degree a competitive edge as well as provide you with a wide range of expertise to transition into the world of work. 95% our philosophy joint honours undergraduates are in work or further study within just six months of finishing their degree (DLHE 2015-16). Recent NTU undergraduates have pursued roles with various international charities, accounting firms, and the civil service. Language graduates are in a great demand for a variety of occupations such as teaching, accounting, social work and project management. This joint honours course will give you a competitive edge and will help you to stand out within the undergraduate employment market. You'll also gain skills that will support you in your professional and personal life such as; independence, self-motivation and organisation.
