Each year you will take three course units in Spanish and one in French.
The course is structured around core course units in spoken and written language in each year spent on campus. For Spanish, in your first year you will take either the advanced language course unit or the intensive language course unit for beginners. Additional language course units including translation are taken by specialist (single and major Spanish) students. Language course units exploit film resources and computer programmes designed by the department, with language laboratories, satellite television and internet available all day for personal study.
You will study Spanish and French language throughout the course, and also choose from optional Spanish course units covering literature, film, history, visual arts, and popular culture in the Hispanic world.
Throughout the course, you will:
learn to converse and write confidently in Spanish and French
analyse and critique Spanish and French materials in a wide variety of media
engage with the rich and varied world-view represented through the Spanish and French languages and understand their continuing role in world affairs.
All undergraduate degree courses at Royal Holloway are based on the course unit system. This system provides an effective and flexible approach to study, while ensuring that our degrees have a coherent and developmental structure. In the case of combined degree courses, this approach also makes it possible to change the balance of your subjects during your time at Royal Holloway.
The School's website gives detailed lists of the course units taken for each different degree.
