The taught MA programmes in Hispanic Studies at Kent allow you to take a full MA in Modern Hispanic Studies or to combine your interest in Hispanic Studies with the study of other European literatures on the MA in Hispanic and Comparative Literature.
The MA in Modern Hispanic Studies leads you towards a better understanding of modern Hispanic society and its culture. It consists of two parts: a literary element, taught in conjunction with the MA in Hispanic and Comparative Literature, and a cultural element which is particular to this programme. The MA in Hispanic and Comparative Literature helps you acquire a deeper conceptual awareness of the function and role of literature in Spain, and assess and evaluate it within a wider European context.

The University of Kent’s location is the best in Britain for students who need to visit not only the British Library (London) but also the major libraries and research centres on the European mainland.
