Course content

This wide-ranging and flexible programme offers students the opportunity to develop their understanding of the cultures of the Hispanic and Lusophone world at an advanced level. As a pathway of the Language, Culture and History MA, students can combine their interest in Hispanic and Lusophone Studies with optional modules from Gender Studies, Translation Studies, and Comparative Literature.

UCL Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies features staff who are nationally and internationally renowned experts in the field, who publish in their specialist areas and are active researchers. We regularly host a number of Hispanic and Lusophone Studies events including conferences, research seminars, symposia and a documentary film course in Cuba.

Our location in London provides access to numerous cultural and social events relating to the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world, its literature, films, history and politics. We encourage active participation in the events of the Instituto Cervantes, the Institute for the Study of the Americas, and the numerous Hispanic and Lusophone embassies across London, many of which also provide access to excellent resources to enhance your studies.
