Spain and the countries of Latin America together form a key economic and political presence on the international scene and are known for their extraordinary cultural diversity and fascinating history.
A combined degree with Spanish Studies at Reading will lead to an in-depth knowledge of the Spanish language and more broadly of Hispanic culture in the many countries across the globe where Spanish is spoken. You will have the opportunity to study the language in the context of the enormously varied history, literature and cinema in which it is embedded.
You can also study Spanish in combination with another language. French and Italian can be studied from beginner's level and German from intermediate level (see specific course entry requirements for more details). Learning two languages at university will give you an even broader knowledge, as well as further enhance your career prospects.
Spanish is so much better than it was at school. We get to do more Spanish speaking, and the lecturers are more engaging. They encourage you to go beyond what you do in class and explore for yourself the culture and language.
