4 years (Full-time) / n/a (Part-time) / n/a (Distance / E-Learning)

History and Spanish BA (Joint Honours) enables students to combine the study of the fascinating subject of History with the popular European language of Spanish. With currently around 400 million native speakers in more than twenty countries where Spanish is an official language, Spanish is an increasingly popular language at degree level. The time spent on each subject is effectively halved, enabling students to explore and understand key moments in history whilst developing their Spanish language skills. The programme is highly flexible, enabling students to select modules suited to their own interests and needs.  In addition, students will experience studying in Spain during their third year.
