About the Department

The Department of Hispanic Studies began as part of the creation of two completely new Professorships of Modern Languages (one in French and German, and one in Italian and Spanish) in 1776. The Professorship of Spanish was established as early as 1926. The first holder of this Professorship was Walter Starkie.

Our first change of title (Department of Hispanic Studies) in 2003 reflects the broadening of the curriculum and research interests into Spanish America, which has been developing in Trinity since the 1960s.

Spanish may be studied under the following degree programmes:

  • Joint honor in Spanish and a wide choice of other Arts subjects, including Economics (Two-Subject Modership TR001)
  • Spanish with one of French, German, Italian or Russian within European Studies (TR024)

  • Spanish with Business Studies - BSL (TR090)

    Head of Department: Dr Ciaran Cosgrove
