They rode, or walk’d, or studied Spanish

To read Don Quixote in the original

A pleasure before which all others vanish.

         Lord Byron, Don Juan (Canto the Fourteenth)


Spanish is rightly perceived as a fun language with many, especially younger people, associating it with exciting music and dance such as Flamenco and Salsa, but it is also a world language - after English and Chinese it is probably spoken by more people than any other language.


The study of Spanish at the University of Malta equips students with a solid grounding in the language, literature, culture, and current affairs of Spain, and Spanish-speaking Latin America. It may be studied up to BA Honours level. A BA in Spanish Studies is a pre-requisite for joining the Masters in Teaching and Learning (Spanish) course.

Competence in Spanish will permit access to job openings in international business, the diplomatic service and EU institutions; translation and interpretation; education; and any area of endeavour where a knowledge of languages is an asset.

The Department also offers introductory courses in Portuguese as spoken in Brazil.
