Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies and Spanish & Latin American Studies sets your exploration of the lives and legacy of the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian peoples within a European historical and contemporary context through study of Spanish and its use and culture in Spain and Latin America. This combination provides an ideal preparation for a career in the arts, broadcasting or heritage management and also adds the international dimension to open options including business or tourism.
Aberdeen has been a centre for Celtic studies for more than a century and is now a leading research centre in all aspects of the norther polar regions including its peoples. You will study literature, culture, history and languages, inspired by leading specialists in the history and literature of Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia in the middle ages, in medieval Celtic and Scandinavian literature and the cultural history of Ireland and Anglo-Saxon England.
Spanish & Latin American Studies at Aberdeen has an outstanding reputation, with the highest possible rating of ‘Excellent’ in the last national Teaching Quality Assessment. We will equip you with the skills to communicate in a global language, spoken by 350 million native Spanish speakers in 19 Latin American states, Spain and increasingly in the US. You will also study historical, anthropological, literary and cultural texts, films and visual culture.
As an integral part of your 5-year programme, you will spend the whole of year three taking your language skills to a very high level as a teaching assistant or visiting student in a Spanish-speaking country. On graduation your wide perspective of ancient and modern, northern and global and your highly developed skills in language, culture and critical thinking will give you many choices, including a career in the arts, heritage management, or broadcasting and media. The international dimension widens your choice, for example to European and international business and organisations and tourism.
