About BA Hispanic Studies

Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world.

With interactive language learning in Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan and a diverse range of units covering history, literature and cinema, Bristol’s Hispanic Studies course will give you a global perspective on the cultures of hundreds of millions of people.

This course allows you to combine the study of Spanish with Portuguese, which can be studied from beginners' level, and Catalan from year two. You will divide your third year between a Portuguese-speaking country and Catalonia (for Spanish and Catalan).

Our degree builds on many aspects of the history, literature and culture of Portugal, Spain and Latin America. Literary and cultural units enable you to improve your language skills through reading modern representative texts and viewing films, while giving you a taste of the cultural diversity of the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world.
