What Will You Study

Lancaster’s four-year combined Spanish Studies and Philosophy degree is taught by our Department of European Languages and Cultures and our Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR) – ranked first in the North West in The Guardian University Guide 2013. Both departments have excellent national and international reputations for their teaching standards and for the calibre of their research.

Your degree begins with core courses:  Introduction to Philosophy, Spanish Language (Intensive for Beginners or Advanced), and an introduction to Hispanic culture studies.  As you progress, you’ll be able to specialise according to your own interests and strengths, with a selection of modules and options such as Treachery, War and Exile in Spanish Poetry; Latin America and Spain on Film; History of Philosophy, and Ethics: Theory and Practice.

You’ll spend your third year working or studying in a Spanish-speaking country where you’ll immerse yourself in the language and culture and complete the Residence Abroad: Intercultural and Academic Reflection module before returning to Lancaster to finish your degree.
