Spanish Language and Latin American studies will teach you the Spanish Language, but it also seeks to provide you with a better understanding of the historical processes that led to the huge differences we can see between rich and poor in Latin America today.
Close to five hundred million people have Spanish as their native language. It is the second-most spoken language in the world and the third most used language on the internet. Norway also has strong ties and interests in Latin America both through investments but also by working towards democratization and Human rights.
Important issues we examine are:
- How can historical processes explain the enormous differences between the poor and the rich in Latin America today?
- In which way does the literature represent a fusion of the rich diversity of cultures and ethnic groups on the continent?
- How does the Spanish language develop in an increasingly globalised world?

A first degree (bachelor’s degree) of three or four years duration from an approved institution of higher education, as well as proficiency in the Spanish and English languages. Your Bachelor’s degree must have a specialisation in Spanish language and/or Latin-American studies. It should correspond to at least three semesters of full-time study and include courses in the areas of linguistics and culture or literature. A first class degree in Spanish language studies and Latin-American studies or another relevant subject is normally required to be considered for admission.
The Master’s programme in Spansh is taught in Spanish and requires an excellent command of the language both written and oral.
In the work with the master’s thesis you will, in an independent way, make use of methods and scientific working techniques from the subject field in the research of a relevant material from one of the three main disciplines.
The master’s thesis is an individual research project on a subject of your own choice taken from one of the three main disciplines in the course: (1) Spanish linguistics, (2) literature and (3) cultural knowledge. The master’s thesis forms the most important part of the master’s programme, and it has been estimated to two semesters of intensive work. The theme for the master’s thesis may in principle be chosen freely following advice from your course lecturer, but in practice, it will be set by your academic skills and your academic supervisor’s area of research. The master’s thesis is to be written in Spanish and should be between 70 and 100 pages. You will receive individual guidance during the research and writing process.
The programme consists of five course modules, adding up to 60 ECTS credits, and a master’s thesis of 60 ECTS pertaining to one of the following fields: language, literature or cultural studies.
