Teaching format

The MLitt in Spanish and Latin American Studies is a one-year taught programme run by the Department of Spanish in the School of Modern Languages. It is primarily targeted for students whose main focus is literary studies with an interest in history and visual culture.

The taught portion of the course consists of five compulsory modules involving literary theory, research skills, and Spanish and Latin American literature and culture. Classes are delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars and fortnightly tutorials, with class sizes ranging from individual one-to-one teaching up to 20 students. Modules are assessed through coursework; there are no final exams for this programme.

You will spend the summer months focusing on researching and writing a final dissertation of no more than 15,000 words.
