Course Summary

This programme will enable you to study two European languages as well as the literature, artistic developments and theories associated with them. The programme aims to develop your engagement with the languages, histories, literatures, cultures and societies of France, Germany and other countries with which they share the language. Through intense training in the target languages you will acquire near-native fluency.Beyond the intensive study of the French language, you will explore the exciting contribution of French speakers to world culture. French political and philosophical ideas have played a central role in creating our modern civilisation. As a large subject area, the French department at Edinburgh can offer you a wide range of courses spanning the Middle Ages to the 21st century, including specialist options in literature, film and politics taught by leading specialists in their field.German meanwhile is the most widely spoken language in Western Europe and is becoming increasingly important as a business language in Eastern Europe. German history, science and culture have had a huge impact across the world, and graduate employers recognise the need for a broad cultural education alongside language skills. You will explore this history and culture alongside the study of the German language. We have an excellent reputation for German research, which covers a broad range of topics, including German-Jewish writing, Medieval studies, East German studies, the Third Reich and the Holocaust, gender and politics, disability, travel writing, theatre and translation.
