About this course
Develop your passion for reading and your talent for languages with this English and Spanish degree. Examine writers from around the world in the context of politics, culture, identity and society. At Southampton, you'll study the Spanish language, linguistics and culture, and English together, to improve the way you learn. Your year abroad will give you new perspectives on language, story and identity.
This dynamic course shows you the connections between literature, language and culture. Our English modules cover writing from around the world and the links to politics, the arts, identity and more. You’ll study novels, poetry, drama and non-fiction from their early origins to the present day.
In your Spanish studies, you can take modules that feed your love of history and culture, or you may choose to focus on linguistics. You can shape your degree to suit your interests or career aspirations.
You'll spend your third year abroad at one of our partner universities or take a work placement.
