Welcome to the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, UCC's centre for research and teaching of the cultures and languages of the Hispanic world. You can study Spanish in a number of ways with us —at undergraduate, postgraduate or just for fun.

At undergraduate level, choose from:

BA World Languages

BA International

BComm International


BA Criminology

Many of these degrees include the option to study for a year in Spain or Mexico. We offer courses on the culture, history, film and literature of Spain and Latin America with a particular emphasis on Mexico, as the Department houses Ireland's only Centre for Mexican Studies. Students also have an option to study both the languages and cultures of Catalonia (Catalan), the Basque Country (Basque) and Galicia (Galician). The Irish Centre for Galician Studies is both a research and teaching focus for the Department.

You can also study at postgraduate level or on a more informal level choosing from the wide range of courses available on our Evening Course Programme 

We also offer Portuguese —both language and cultural courses— for those students eager to pursue interests in the Lusophone world, either Brazil, Lusophone Africa or Portugal. 

Do get in touch, we are always happy to help!

¡Bienvenidos y mucha suerte!
