Tertulia de Lectura y Cine - June 2017

A monthly Spanish social event to talk about social, historical and political aspects of the Spanish speaking world through literature and film.

Welcome

At York we are driven by an interest in what language is, in every sense. 

  • Our teaching and research has been consistently highly-rated over a number of years. 
  • We are one of the few departments in the UK to combine the study of modern languages with linguistic study, and our BA degrees offer a variety of combinations of languages and linguistics.
  • Our degrees equip our students with a variety of practical and analytical skills which have significant value in the modern world.

Our university encourages research-led teaching. We offer a wide range of courses guiding you into linguistic research in the final year BA modules and MA modules.
