This programme of studies is designed to perfect your linguistic, cultural, socio-political and historical knowledge of the regions of the world's second most spoken language.
Spanish is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and an official language used in the European Union. International corporations are aware of the advantage of employing people who have a cultural as well as linguistic understanding of Spanish.Career opportunities
Employability is embedded into modules from the first year onwards, right from the first lecture. We offer a number of optional employability modules.
A year abroad can also give you the chance to achieve something away from education-centred activity, such as gaining relevant work experience to help form your future plans. With many employers now expecting extracurricular or voluntary experience, this can prove vital.Your specialities in intercultural communication, listening and language will be highly valued by employers.
By successfully completing the MLang you will be in a strong position for future PhD study and an academic career.

Course ContentProgramme Structure
Years one and two
The MLang Spanish in years one and two is broadly the same as the corresponding undergraduate programme but in your second year you are also required to take a module entitled Languages for Academic Study" which is designed to prepare you for studies at the partner university during the year abroad.
Year three - the year abroad
You will select from a range of relevant modules at the partner university and you will take an assessed language module as well as three other online modules from Southampton (a research skills module and two language related content modules). Modules taken at the partner university and online modules from Southampton will all contribute to the final degree classification and marks awarded by the partner university will be translated in accordance with Humanities guidelines.
Preparation and support
You will be carefully prepared both for the year abroad and for higher levels of study. We have well established procedures for supporting you as you prepare for the year abroad and you will receive risk assessment training and will be assigned an academic advisor who will support you in your studies both at Southampton and abroad.
Year 4 - the Masters year
In your final year back in Southampton you will choose modules from Modern Languages Masters programmes and will complete research in an area related to your programme in which you have developed an interest. This will be supervised by a member of academic staff with the relevant research interest. You will write your Masters dissertation in the summer at the end of your fourth year. As an MLang student you are expected to participate in the Humanities research community through Graduate School events and ML research seminars.
