Each year you will take three course units in Spanish and one in film studies.
In Spanish the course is structured around core course units in spoken and written language and you will also study translation. You will use film resources and computer programmes designed by the School of Modern Language, Literatures and Cultures; with language laboratories, satellite television and internet available all day for personal study.
The course covers an array of topics relating to the Hispanic world, including language and translation, literature, film, history, visual arts, and popular culture. All or part of your third year will be spent in Spain or Latin America studying at a partner university, working as a language assistant, or in other approved employment.
In international film you will take two core courses in European film and choose from specialist subjects that explore cinema in France, Germany, Spain and Italy.
Throughout the course, you will:
- learn to converse and write confidently in contemporary Spanish
- analyse and critique Spanish materials in a wide variety of media
- take advantage of excellent quality equipment and dedicated language learning facilities
- develop a valuable portfolio of transferable skills, including the ability to conduct independent research and present analyses in a cogent, balanced and persuasive manner.
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.
