English Language and Linguistics and Hispanic Studies - BA (Hons)
Studying Spanish in combination with English Language and Linguistics enables you to learn another language and gain an understanding of how language actually works. Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world – outside Spain, it is the official language of all countries in South and Central America except Brazil, and is widely spoken in many parts of North America. The program gives you the opportunity to explore the languages and cultures of Spain and Spanish America while developing your language skills.
While studying English Language and Linguistics as a second subject, you explore both the structure of language and its relationship with culture, society and the mind. A broad choice of theoretical topics encompasses such areas as syntax, phonetics and phonology, morphology, sociolinguistics, language acquisition, semantics, pragmatics, literary stylistics and critical and cultural theory; modules in language learning and teaching, creative and media writing, and language and media have a more vocational focus.
