Hispanic Studies

Hispanic Studies are concerned with the Spanish language, which evolved from Latin, its special characteristics, its literatures and diverse culture. Students deepen their practical knowledge of the language and also study content from the areas of linguistics, literature and cultural studies.

The field of linguistics examines the emergence, development and current state of the Spanish language (phonology, word formation, syntax, etc. ). Students also receive an overview of other subfields of linguistics as well as their theories and methods.

Literary studies provide insights into the literary history of the respective language area from the Middle Ages to the present (periods, genres, authors, works, etc.). Literary studies also include theories, methodologies and models with regard to Spanish literature. In addition, students are acquainted with methodologies and aids for literary research.

Cultural studies address theories, methods and models with a view to different cultures but also include country-specific orientational knowledge. This includes the examination of current and historical political, economic and social structures, media landscapes and educational systems in Spanish-speaking geographies.
