What is it like?

Spanish is spoken not only in Spain, but in more than 20 countries in Latin America, parts of Africa and in many regions of the United States. Alongside the language is a vibrant and captivating cultural heritage, which New Zealanders are beginning to discover and appreciate more fully through our growing relationships with Latin American countries.

Courses are offered at all levels in Spanish language, literature, culture, music and civilisation. Their focus is divided between Spain itself and the nations of Latin America.


Knowledge of Spanish language and culture will prove both valuable and rewarding. A degree majoring in Spanish makes a wide range of career choices possible.
