Course Overview

Lancaster's combined four-year Spanish Studies and Theatre Studies degree is taught jointly in our Department of European Languages and Culture and the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA). This degree scheme includes a year spent in a Spanish-speaking country, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the language and culture.

Your Spanish Studies courses will develop your proficiency in written and spoken Spanish while exploring the society, culture, history and politics of Spain. In Theatre Studies, you'll expand your understanding and creative abilities through a stimulating integration of theory and practice and with the option of more subject specific or interdisciplinary studies.

You'll begin your degree with core modules including Spanish Studies (Intensive for Beginners or Advanced) and Introduction to Theatre Studies. In your second year, you'll study subjects such as Spanish Language: Oral Skills; Performance Composition, Post war European Playwrights, Work Placement, Media and Performance and TV Drama.

The third year abroad makes a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity, before finishing your degree back at Lancaster with courses such as Applied Theatre Practice, Creative Enterprise, Popular Performance, Spanish Language: Written Skills and Living Against Franco.
