Catalan

We are one of the longest established international centres for the study of Catalan. Our interests cover the language, literature, popular culture, art and politics of the Catalan people.  Our native speakers will teach you their language and share their enthusiasm of all things Catalan.

Courses

Find out about our Catalan courses.

Year abroad

As a language student you will spend at least seven months in Year 3 studying or working in a Catalan-speaking region on your year abroad.

Modules

You will learn about the history, society and culture of the Catalan region at the same time as you learn to write and speak the language. Students on our BA in Hispanic Studies (RR45) may have the option to take Beginners' modules in Catalan Language in final year.

See our module descriptors pages to find out more. Hispanic Studies modules are coded with an "HISP" prefix.

Resources

We have strong links with the Institut Ramón Llull to spread worldwide interest in Catalan language and culture. We have a fully-equipped language laboratory and a Modern Languages Resource Centre that can also be used for private study. Our programmes offer excellent career preparation and a launchpad for postgraduate study and research.
