If you want to achieve a high level of competency in a modern European language, as well as learn about Spanish and Latin American culture and society more generally, studying Spanish as part of our BA degree is for you.
  • As a student of Spanish, you will have a twin focus on language and culture. Through language classes and with supporting material such as film, literature and cultural events, you will aim to become a fluent speaker and writer of Spanish. If you’re a beginner, you can take intensive language classes.
  • Over the course of your degree programme, you will receive an excellent grounding in all aspects of Spanish language through core modules in Spanish Grammar, Professional Spanish and Translation. In your second and final years you can choose from a broad range of optional modules, such as Linguistics, Spanish Literature and Cinema, Latin American Literature and Cinema, Catalan and Portuguese.
  • Students are expected to spend the third year of their BA studying in a University in Spain or Latin America, including the world-renowned Universities of Salamanca and Guadalajara, Mexico. This is a unique opportunity and a “life changing” experience, as a recent article in the Spanish newspaper El Pais (21st May 2017) points out.
  • You also have the opportunity to work as a Teaching Assistant in Spain (subject to availability), which is a great asset to have on your CV.
Students interested in teaching Spanish should note that the Teaching Council of Ireland require all registered teachers of Spanish to have spent a minimum of two months living in a Spanish-speaking country. The Maynooth University School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures advise at least a three-month residency.
