I am looking to study Economics and Spanish at university and would ideally like to have Economics as a Major and Spanish as a minor.

I have been considering the Hispanic Studies and Economics course at Warwick and was concerned with it being a 50-50 split between the 2 subjects.

I was wondering if there was anyone on this forum who has done the course or is currently doing it.

If so, I was looking for some feedback please:

1. Had you studied Economics as part of your A level studies. If so, did you find that this course gave you a good progression from there?

2. Was there more focus on the Spanish culture than the language in this course?

3. If you have completed the course, did this course help with you future plans for employment or study?

4. My plan is to eventually be employed in the financial sector. Would this degree be helpful for that? I'm concerned the focus on Economics might not be enough for that.

5. The year abroad - do you get to choose which of the 3 options you do? Is it possible to do a combination of all 3 options during your year abroad?

Any feedback from current or past students of this course would be great.

Thanks.

Hi, I can't answer all these questions but I can answer some - I've just graduated in Hispanic Studies and Politics from Warwick

1. N/A

2. On Econ and Hispanic Studies, each year you do 50% Spanish and 50% Econ. Within the 50% Spanish, you do one year-round Spanish language module and then you do 2x one-term culture modules. The culture modules have a huge range from politics to film to literature to specialist translation!

3. Not the exact course but it helped me a lot! I'm a future trainee at an international law firm and got multiple offers

4. Yes - I know lots of people on this exact degree who work in finance including in investment banking at the biggest and best firms

5. you can choose whether you study, work, or do Britsh Council (teaching English). If you do British Council, you commit to doing this for the entire year as it is a year-long placement in a school - but you can intern/work for the summer either side of the placement if you want. It is possible to combine work and study e.g., work/intern in term 1 and then go to a uni for term 2 etc. Warwick tries to be as flexible as possible to give you autonomy over your Year Abroad

All in all, I LOVED my time at Warwick and can't recommend it enough! If you have any more questions feel free to let me know and I'm happy to help

Thank you for your helpful response. The course sounds better than I initially thought. Thank you for your offer to answer further questions. I might come back with some more later.
