This course provides you with an excellent grounding in written and spoken French language, as well as the chance to pursue your interests through a wide range of optional modules in French and francophone culture, history, literature, theatre, politics and film. Core modules in grammar, translation and spoken language will develop your French to a near-native level by the time you graduate. We’re proud of our small language classes, led by native speakers. Direct access to expert staff for help and feedback ensures you develop your skills to the best of your ability.

Career

As a graduate in English Literature and French you will enter the job market with highly-developed research and communication skills; you will know how to access reliable information on any topic and how to present your findings in clear and persuasive language: these are valuable skills in today’s economy, where information and communicate skills are vital. You will have the critical and cultural awareness necessary for working in the public sector and the media. You will be able to write and speak fluently in French: an immensely useful skill when there is a great shortage of well-qualified linguists in the UK.
