Department of Spanish Studies

Academic Programmes

The Department of Spanish Studies at the Doon University, with a very well researched and constantly updated curriculum, intends to cater to these contemporary needs. The faculty aims at incorporating the most modern techniques of teaching of language, literature and culture at BA level with use of communicative and interactive exercises. At MA level the faculty aims at developing a deep sense of analysis of the significant issues pertaining to Spain and Latin America by encouraging students to carry out an original research work. There is a very well equipped Multi Media Lab with audio-visual facilities in the classrooms.

Classroom teaching is blended with workshops, seminars, games, interactive sessions, cultural activities etc. We try to equip our students to develop academic as well as professional skills. The list of courses below reflects the idea that to earn a Masters Degree in Spanish would mean not only learning to use the language with competence in a variety of situations but also gaining knowledge about the socio-cultural evolution of the Spanish speaking people around the world.
