Undergraduate study in Hispanic Studies 

At Birmingham, you can study Spanish as a Single Honours degree or you can combine it with a wide range of other subjects. We welcome both beginners and advanced students.

You can follow modules which deal with history, linguistics and visual arts and/or opt for more specialised courses, such as Introduction to the Spanish Caribbean, Literature and Violence in Peru or Barcelona: Urban Space and Cultural Identity. You can also study Portuguese, Catalan, Galician and Basque as part of our programmes, beginning in your first or second year and with the option of continuing with them through your year abroad into final year. Portuguese is not available as a Single Honours subject but can be taken post A level and as a beginner as part of the BA Modern Languages programme.
