You’ll begin your degree with French and Spanish courses which both have a language-specific cultural component. You will also study a minor subject of your choice, which may be another language. Building on your language skills in Year 2, you will also study the culture, politics and history of France and Spain in more depth, as well as selecting courses which are international in scope and promote a comparative understanding of Europe and beyond.

Spending your third year abroad makes a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement. As a joint major student, you can spend your time in a French- or Spanish-speaking country, or split the year between the two. In your fourth year, you will continue developing your core French and Spanish language skills.

As well as language and subject related skills, a degree in languages develops rich interpersonal, intercultural, cognitive and transferable skills that can be utilised across a variety of careers. Our graduates have found work in a wide variety of areas such as accountancy, IT, business development, civil service, events management, finance, journalism, publishing, research and sales, as well as teaching and translating both in the UK and beyond.
