We are one of only two centres in the UK for Basque Studies and our interests cover the language, literature, society, popular culture, art and politics of the Basque people.

Study Basque as part of Hispanic Studies

You will study Basque as part of Hispanic Studies, rather than as a stand-alone course. Hispanic studies is a diverse course covering the languages, literatures, cultures and histories of Spain, Portugal and Latin America. At the University of Liverpool, Basque is taken as a beginners’ language. 


Basque is taught by native speakers in a cultural environment that celebrates all things Basque.  You will learn about the history, society and culture of the Basque region at the same time as you learn the language.
