Administrative / Biographical history

Spanish was taught at King's College from 1831, initially as a course in the Senior Department and then the Department of General Literature and Science, then as a Faculty of Arts course until 1923/4, when it became recognised in its own right as the Spanish Studies Department. In 1973, the department changed its title to the Spanish and Spanish-American Studies Department in recognition of a broadening Latin American syllabus, and has been part of the School of Humanities since 1989.
