Hispanic Studies 

Modern Languages at Birmingham is the only department in the UK to offer modules in Spanish, Portuguese, Basque, Catalan, Galician as well as in the Literatures and Cultures of the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America.

Hispanic Studies is not just an academic discipline; it represents an enormously diverse and vibrant culture, embracing languages, literatures, visual arts and music.

Over 75% of research in the Department of Modern Languages has been judged to be ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. This is the result of the national Research Excellence Framework exercise, which assessed research publications and the public impact of research carried out in all universities in the UK 2008-2014.
