Students at National University of Ireland, Galway will extend their awareness of and sensitivity to a range of intercultural issues and be capable of contributing to professional and economic activities relating to the Spanish-speaking world.
A postgraduate degree is an appropriate means of achieving a very high degree of oral and written fluency in Spanish, in addition to developing competency in research methods and intellectual enquiry. Graduate students achieve greater confidence in the knowledge and skills already acquired from undergraduate study, in addition to becoming articulate members of society, sensitive to cultural issues.
Students will hone their language and translation skills in English and Spanish and, through modules available within Spanish and across other disciplines, be exposed to a range of contemporary critical debates relating to Latin America literature, culture studies, intercultural communication and translation studies.
Career OpportunitiesGraduates of the MA (Spanish) have gone on to do second- and third-level teaching and doctoral and translation work. They have also found employment in media, administration, cultural activities and journalism.
