What is the degree program about?

Spanish is not just something you can study for a teaching degree. But what exactly do you do when you choose the Bachelor’s degree program in Hispanic Studies? Of course, language learning and theoretical reflection on the language and culture are the main focus. In addition to practical language courses (e.g., in grammar, text production, or pronunciation), seminars on the processes of development and transformation of language, literature, and culture are also an important part of the bachelor’s program. In addition to the language, of which you should already have a basic knowledge, you will therefore also deal academically with linguistics, cultural studies, literary studies and regional studies.

In a proseminar on Spanish literary studies, for example, you will become acquainted with Latin American novels that are classified as magical realism and examine the extent to which this is a cultural movement that differs from contemporary developments in Europe. In a linguistics lecture, for example, you will deal with Spanish in the Caribbean, the contact there with other languages, or with varieties of Spanish on the Iberian Peninsula.

You can best practice and deepen your language skills abroad. FAU maintains active exchange programs with Spanish universities (including Alicante, Barcelona, Cádiz, Córdoba, Madrid, Málaga).
