What Will You Study

Lancaster’s four-year combined Spanish Studies and Geography degree is delivered by our Department of Languages and Cultures and our Geography department, part of the award-winning Lancaster Environment Centre. An integral year abroad gives you the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of Spanish culture and intensive exposure to the language.

Your Spanish Studies degree focuses firmly on developing high levels of proficiency in the language, complemented by courses in contemporary Spanish history and institutions and Spanish and Mexican culture.

You’ll begin your degree with courses including Spanish Studies (Intensive for Beginners or Advanced) and Society and Space - Human Geography. In your second year, you’ll study subjects such as Concepts, and Spanish Language: Oral Skills. Your third year, spent abroad, will make a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You will then finish your degree back at Lancaster by taking final year Spanish language and culture as well as Geography modules.
