The taught MA programmes in Hispanic Studies at Kent allow you to take a full MA in Modern Hispanic Studies or to combine your interest in Hispanic Studies with the study of other European literatures on the MA in Hispanic and Comparative Literature. The MA in Modern Hispanic Studies leads you towards a better understanding of modern Hispanic society and its culture. It consists of two parts: a literary element, taught in conjunction with the MA in Hispanic and Comparative Literature, and a cultural element which is particular to this programme. The MA in Hispanic and Comparative Literature helps you acquire a deeper conceptual awareness of the function and role of literature in Spain, and assess and evaluate it within a wider European context.
The staff who teach the core modules in Hispanic Studies and Comparative Literature are all based in the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL) and are actively engaged in research in the topics covered on the modules. We hope you enjoy studying with us and that, by the end of the programme, you feel you have developed your knowledge and critical understanding of modern Spain and Latin America. There are opportunities to continue researching in Hispanic Studies when you have completed your MA and we would be happy to discuss this possibility with you.
This programme delves deeply into the function and role of literature in Spain, especially within a wider European context. You can also take advantage of other modules offered within the Faculty of Humanities. This gives you a choice of options according to your own preferences, while at the same time reinforcing your skills in an increasingly popular and widely used world language.
The following modules are indicative of those offered on this programme. This list is based on the current curriculum and may change year to year. Most programmes will require you to study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. You may also have the option to take modules from other programmes so that you may customise your programme and explore other subject areas that interest you.
