We understand the value of expanding your study experience beyond a single subject which is why, with our BA Economics with French, we’re focused on providing multiple perspectives and a truly international experience. Your studies will follow a similar pattern to the BA Economics programme, except that you take compulsory modules in French in your first, second and fourth years. In your third year you’ll study at a university in Aix-en-Provence through the ERASMUS programme while continuing to study Economics.**Year 1**In the first year, in addition to the economics compulsory modules, you take a further two compulsory modules covering French language and The Invention of France. In addition, you choose one further optional module from a selection that currently includes both economics and French options and have the opportunity to take a module from another department.**Year 2**In the second year, you study four compulsory modules covering French language, and core Economics modules, and choose two further optional modules, one of which can be a module offered by another department, which could include a foreign language. Furthermore, you will acquire numerous subject skills which enable you to interpret economic theory and data. **Year 3**During the third year of study, students must undertake a period of residence in France and must study and pass a minimum of 40 ECTS credits from those modules offered on the ‘licence sciences economique’ (third-year modules), those designed for students who specialise in either ‘Economie Internationale’ or ‘Economie et Gestion de l’enterprise’ at the University of Aix-Marseilles II.**Year 4**In the fourth year, you study one compulsory module in French and a double Dissertation module.
