About this course

Politics and Spanish and Latin American Studies will give you the tools to understand the politics and culture of Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries. You’ll become fluent in Spanish, a language with over 500 million speakers around the world. You'll also develop a global viewpoint on issues like migration, security, and cultural rights, preparing you for an international career.

You’ll start at a level that matches your ability in spoken and written Spanish, which helps ensure rapid progress. 

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

You’ll take some compulsory language, linguistics and politics modules, but also have lots of choice about what to study.

As part of your degree you can:

  • learn a second modern language at any level
  • learn from the latest research findings in international relations
  • join one of 40 student-led performing arts groups
  • study work-related subjects such as audiovisual translation

Your third year will be spent abroad in a Spanish or Portuguese-speaking country undertaking either a work placement, a British Council placement or at one of Southampton’s partner universities.

On campus, you’ll be part of a lively cultural network. You can join student societies for many of the Spanish-speaking countries, and we have links with cultural institutions across the world.
