Their interests in Spain and Latin America differ widely, yet students of Spanish have one thing in common: they want to explore and experience all aspects of Spanish and Latin American culture, language, literature and society.
You are in demand
Spanish is one of the world's largest languages, and the rapid increase of Spanish-speaking citizens across the world ensues a need for employees who master the Spanish language. Due to increasing globalisation, good communication skills and cultural understanding, have become important instruments to organisations, places of study and public institutions.
The study environment is dynamic and inspiring, and there is a constant exchange of ideas and knowledge among Spanish students and staff. Because the programme is small, there is a close collaboration between anyone who studies or teaches Spanish. You may select courses that help point your education in the direction you want. You may also want to take the opportunity to spend one or two semesters in Spain or Latin America.
An abundance of possibilities
With a degree in Spanish you may find work in the educational system, for instance as a high school teacher or an instructor at university level.
