Founded in 1920, Hispanic Studies at the University of Aberdeen is one of the most dynamic place to study and research the Spanish language and the cultural frameworks in which the language is sited. There are eight full-time members of staff and undergraduate student numbers have risen to an intake of over one hundred and fifty students in the first year, a significant percentage of whom are international.
Hispanic Studies at Aberdeen is one of the most interdisciplinary programmes available in the UK. We seek to equip our students with the skills to speak and communicate in a global language, spoken by 350 million native Spanish speakers in nineteen Latin American states, the Spanish Peninsula, and increasingly in the United States. Additionally, our students gain skills enabling them to study critically historical, anthropological, literary and cultural texts, films and visual culture and to communicate their own ideas and arguments through oral and written presentation.
The diversity of the cultures that it embraces makes Hispanic Studies an exciting and dynamic subject to study, one which will not only deepen your understanding of other fundamentally different cultures, but which will also sharpen your insight into your own cultural context.
