The combined honours programme offers you an opportunity to study two subjects at degree level, enabling you to benefit from high quality teaching across more than one subject.
International Relations is concerned with the system through which decisions are made in the international arena, with international institutions (like the World Trade Organization and the World Bank) and the relationship between these institutions and nation states. It is also about non-governmental institutions (NGOs): charities, pressure groups like Greenpeace and social movements like the World Social Forum. It is concerned with the study of power relations in the international arena amongst individuals, within social groups and amongst nation states.
Spanish: Proficiency in modern languages will give you the competitive edge in the global jobs market. In both the private and public sectors, there is demand for professionals with strong language skills who can work in culturally diverse environments. Studying Spanish at Manchester Met will give you the opportunity to learn from native speakers. Our languages department have created their own multi-cultural community, including British, exchange and international students, along with foreign language assistants, allowing you to be absorbed into the everyday use of your chosen language.
We have been providing professional language courses for more than 30 years. Our strong local, national and global links will help to enhance your study and future employment opportunities.
If you take Spanish as a major or equal subject you will be required to spend your third year abroad in Spain or Latin America. If Spanish is your minor subject, the course will be three years with no study abroad.
This course has a Foundation Year available.
