About this course

With this German and Spanish Linguistics degree, you’ll develop strong language skills and a comprehensive understanding of both cultures. You'll specialise in linguistics and explore the structure, use and psychology of both languages. You'll also spend a year abroad in a German- or Spanish-speaking country.

Following our unique system of language development, you’ll start at a level that matches your ability in both German and Spanish. This means we can personalise your learning and you'll make the most rapid progress at each stage of the course.

In linguistics, you'll study the nature of speech, the structure of language, phonetics, how languages are learnt and their social context.

You'll spend your year abroad in year 3 in either a work placement, a British Council placement or at one of Southampton’s partner universities

You’ll have a range of resources to support you, including the Centre for Language Study, which offers  language and academic advising.
