Monash has one of the largest Spanish and Latin American Studies programs in Australia. We cater for all levels of language learners, from complete beginners to native speakers. Our teaching program is unique. Complementing your language studies, from first year you learn about events and influences that have shaped the diversity of the Spanish-speaking world. As you progress through your studies you will develop the ability to discuss a range of contemporary issues relevant to your life and to society in general. We use music, film, popular media and literature to assist you to improve your language skills and to gain a deep understanding of Spanish and Latin American cultures and societies. Through the Monash Study Abroad program, many of our students spend six to twelve months living and studying in a Spanish-speaking country.
You will be taught by native and non-native speakers, all of whom have extensive experience in a variety of Spanish-speaking countries. Our teaching and research staff are recognised specialists in a range of areas, including multiculturalism, trans-nationalism, gender studies, cinema and literary studies, and postcolonial studies. Monash is the only Australian university that teaches the linguistic and cultural diversity of Spain and Latin America through Catalan and Brazilian studies.
In learning Spanish you will join over 400 million speakers across twenty-three countries.
