Course content

The MA in Spanish is aimed at students and language professionals who wish to consolidate and extend oral and written fluency in Spanish, in addition to developing competency in research methods and, optionally, a deeper knowledge of Spanish and/or Latin American literature. Students will extend their awareness of and sensitivity to a range of intercultural issues and be capable of contributing to professional and economic activities relating to the Spanish-speaking world.

A postgraduate degree is an appropriate means of achieving a very high degree of oral and written fluency in Spanish, in addition to developing competency in research methods and intellectual enquiry. Graduate students achieve greater confidence in the knowledge and skills already acquired from undergraduate study, in addition to becoming articulate members of society, sensitive to cultural issues.

Students will hone their language and translation skills in English and Spanish and, through modules available within Spanish and across other disciplines, be exposed to a range of contemporary critical debates relating to Latin America literature, culture studies, intercultural communication and translation studies.
